Police to Reinstate Operation Fika Salama as Road Carnage Continues
By Shadrach Bethel,
Police have announced the reinstatement of Operation Fika Salama among other interventions in a bid to contain fatalities on Ugandan roads.
In the past two months, over 250 people have been killed in accidents.
Pioneered in 2016 by the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) and enforced by Traffic Police and other sister security agencies, Operation Fika Salama was a special intervention aimed at checking on errant drivers on major highways.
Traffic Police spokesperson, Faridah Nampiima said in the wake of continued road carnage, they have resolved to resume serious operations targeting drivers on the road.
