Beti Kamya summoned

Parliament has asked the minister for Kampala City Authority Beti Kamya to explain fate of vendors in the city following commencement of an operation by KCCA to arrest them.

This matter was raised by the Rubaga North Member of Parliament Moses Kasibante during plenary yesterday, prompting the speaker Rebecca Kadaaga to summon the minister

According to Kasibante KCCA and police are still arresting vendors, yet KCCA council members earlier passed a resolution to gazette some lanes specifically for vendors.

Last month Kampala Capital City Authority Councilors gazetted city roads enable street vendors operate during evening hours and the gazetted roads include Nakivubo Mews, Nakivubo Road, Allen Road and Kafumbe Mukasa Road .
