Lord Mayor Lukwago Drags Minister Of Kampala To Court

Lord Mayor of Kampala Erias Lukwago has dragged the Minister of Kampala and RCC’s office to court. He is accusing them of heading illegal operations in the city.

This follows the crackdown on boda boda riders over licenses. Lukwago says that the operation to evict street vendors and hawkers from the city is illegal. This is because KCCA has no enabling law currently to enforce the directive.

“The brutal and violent eviction of all the street vendors, kiosk operators and hawkers by the police, UPDF soldiers, KCCA enforcement officers and unidentified stick-wielding persons calling themselves “smart city operatives” is illegal, ultra vires, irrational and unreasonable,” he said.

Lukwago further says the minister for Kampala and the RCC have no powers under the law to issue any directive prohibiting street vending and hawking.

“The process leading to the decision and/or a directive prohibiting all ‘unregistered’ boda-boda riders from operating in Kampala at specified boda boda stages and within the Metropolitan area are illegal, …” he also added.

Apparently, there will be a reduction in the number of Boda Boda cyclists to only 7000. This is out of over 200,000 riders who operate and do business in Kampala. This is what Lord mayor Erias Lukwago said is also illegal and wrong.
