The Chairman of Uganda Transport and Drivers Association (UTODA) William Katumba has pleaded with president Yoweri Museveni not to ban public transport amidst corona virus saying they are ready to work with government, city authorities and ministry of health to control the disease.
He reasoned that sending off taxis out of business will create public unemployment and increase theft as people will have no option for survival.
According to Utoda Chairman William Katumba, they have formed with corona anti virus team around the city parks to ensure that every passenger entering any taxi washes their hands with soap and put in place sanitizers as mitigation measures to prevent any spread of the disease.
They have also sealed off some entry points in the park to ensure smooth hand washing by the general public around the parks.
Katumba however says they will also reduce the number of passengers laded in taxi from 14 Seater to 9 people to ensure that there is less contact.
