Boda boda riders employ teachers to write passenger details
Boda boda operators in Namutumba district are offering private school teachers Shs300 to register customers on their behalf, as they resume passenger services today.
In his address on the covid-19 situation in the country on Tuesday last week, President Museveni allowed boda bodas to resume carrying of passengers as long as they capture their names and phone numbers.
This, he said was meant to help in contact tracing should a Covid-19 case be reported within a particular community.
However, Samuel Wemunya the Chairperson of boda boda riders in Namutumba, says many of them cannot read and write.
They have thus resolved to raise fares by Shs500 to cater for the teachers who are currently not earning any money to get some means of survival.
