Police on High alert as Boda Boda Riders plan a demonstration next week

Kampala Metropolitan Police have warned a group of people disguising as motorcycle (boda boda) operators who are allegedly planning to stage demonstrations next week to disrupt government systems to ease the lock down that they will be dealt with accordingly.


According to Patrick Onyango the Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, they received credible information that opportunistic people are mobilizing hooligans and disguise them as to carry out demonstrations next week to disrupt government systems to ease the lock down after successful containment of the spread of Coronavirus in the community.


He says that intelligence information indicates that these demonstrations are being planned, mobilized and sponsored by opportunistic people within Kampala Metropolitan Policing area.


The same people are allegedly also mobilizing boda boda operators to disrupt the government efforts in Coronavirus containment at the time when there are systematic processes to ease the lock down.


“We want to appeal to the public, especially boda boda operators, not to be lured into illegal activities by opportunistic people, who are working for their own benefits. We caution anyone who intends to engage in criminal activities that the long arm of the law will catch up with them” Onyango warned.
