Apparently, these passengers are always from bars. He says most of the ambulances, belong to politicians. Their drivers have started using them for their own selfish gains.
“The ambulances, especially the private ones are being used to ferry passengers. You find an ambulance moving at night and thinking it is carrying a patient yet it is transporting revelers from bars during curfew time,” Enanga said.
“The owners of the ambulances, especially the private ones should find ways of monitoring their activities. They can install CCTV cameras to monitor what is going. However, we are soon intercepting them,” he added.
Enanga says some ambulances used to transport smuggled goods especially from the country’s border at Busia.
He adds, however, that security is soon launching an operation to crackdown on drivers who abuse the ambulances.
This is not the first time ambulances are being talked about regarding the same issue. At the height of lockdown, police caught some ambulances carrying passengers to villages.
The worst part was that they were even using sirens as though they were carrying patients in their cars.
However, Enanga says this is going to stop especially with the operation that is soon starting. Otherwise, this is not a good reputation because it puts those that are genuine in jeopardy as well.
