Implementation of directives on boda boda operations pushed to November
The minister for Kampala and Metropolitan Affairs, Betty Amongi has extended implementation of the new directives to streamline the operations of the boda boda industry in the city for 90 days.
Amongi has told journalists in Kampala that the grace period that runs till November 1st 2020, is meant to enable boda boda riders register with Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to be allocated gazatted stages.
She adds that the government, through the ministry of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has embarked on the process of developing a data app that is expected to be ready within a month.
The app will be used to register boda boda passengers to enable the ministry of health to trace them easily in case of covid-19 infection.
