By Afayo Shadrach Bethel
Only registered and trained boda boda riders shall be allowed to operate in Kampala, the Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja has revealed.
Speaking at the launch of the registration exercise for boda boda riders at the Kira Road Police grounds in Kamwokya yesterday, Nabbanja urged riders to shun negative voices discouraging them from registering and training, saying it is through this exercise that they shall be able to formalize their operations in the city.
She says the purpose of the training and registration is to organize the industry, ensure that riders are knowledgeable about their job, and eliminate wrong elements who use boda bodas to engage in theft, robbery, and murders.
The State Minister for Kampala, Kabuye Kyofatogabye said that this week they shall embark on a sensitization campaign to inform riders in the different divisions on the relevance of the training and registration.
