The Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) submitted in a three-month final warning to old Motor Vehicle dealers. Generally, all dealers in different places are urged to sell off their old stock or they wait for the next step from URA.
However, the commissioner Customs Dickson Kateshumbwa said the elimination of these old Motor Vehicles was clearly disclosed while in parliament, that all Old Motor vehicles older than 15 years are no longer accepted starting from this month.
Many Ugandans who wanted to have a chance of driving depending on their low income felt stressed with this decision, but the termination of importing second had cars, clearly aims at fighting pollution and reduce road accidents, which were pinned at the old cars that don’t meet rightful standards.
Old Motor Vehicle dealers have 3 months to clear stock.
Therefore, since the dealers went ahead and sold these cars, even though the parliament discussed about it, the Uganda Revenue decided to purge in this issue and came out with a final decision for all car dealers in Uganda.
Kateshumbwa as we talk noted that all Old Motor Vehicles manufactured before 2004 will not be granted access in the country and all those already on market will be reacted upon after 3 months.
