Kampala Capital City Authority – KCCA Beefs up deployment of enforcement officers to control the influx of vendors on city streets as the festive season draws closer.
Peter Kaujju, the KCCA Spokesperson says the authority has stepped up efforts to maintain order in the city and ensure that hawkers do not operate from un-gazetted areas.
Vendors suddenly returned to the streets after the suspension of operations of the KCCA technical wing by Executive Director Jennifer Musisi Semakula at the height of the Erias Lukwago impeachment fracas citing insecurity of KCCA enforcement officers.
Kaujju says KCCA will continue to ensure that vendors do not return to the streets but instead utilize available facilities like the Wandegeya Market and the earlier constructed USAFI market on Entebbe Road.
Kaujju says that KCCA is certainly aware that vendors are taking advantage of loopholes in the system but adds that plans are underway to facilitate prosecution o vendors and their customers upon arrest.
Meanwhile Kaujju declines to comment on the latest move by Nakivubo Park Yard Market Vendors who have now taken to the street outside the recently burnt market.
