City Hawkers Petition Parliament Not To Approve KCCA Budget

Kampala hawkers have petitioned parliament to halt appropriating the budget for KCCA as long as it fails to provide them with licenses to conduct business in the city. In the statement submitted to the speaker of parliament, the vendors lead by their chairperson Ishmael Mubiru expressed disappointment on the harassment from KCCA enforcement.

 In the same statement, which has been presented by the association public relation officer Emanuel Tebajukira, they cited various incidents where hawkers have been tortured, dragged to KCCA court and sentenced to Luzira prison.

They have also condemned the operations of KCCA that does not accord fair hearing whenever produced to the court.

They demanded parliament to investigate the operations of KCCA before their budget is appropriated.

While responding to their plight, the speaker pledged to address the mater once parliament resumes.
