The Recent Mobile Money And Boda-Boda Attacks Draws The Parliament’s Attention

Members of Parliament want the Government to explain the attacks, which have claimed the lives of several mobile money operators and Boda-Boda riders. 

Robina Rwakojo, the Gomba West MP, says Government needs to explain the killings that have left the boda-boda and mobile money operators in fear. 



She brought the matter to the attention of parliament as a matter of national importance.   

She tasked Government through the Police and Internal Affairs to take charge of their sector or else Ugandans will continue feeling insecure.
Moses Kasibante, the Rubaga North MP questioned why Police hasn’t apprehended the suspects behind the attacks even in cases where the criminals are captured on camera.  

Luttamaguzi Ssemakula, the Nakaseke South MP, said so far 9 mobile money operators have been killed across the country in the same manner.  

He says the mobile money operators are leaving in fear because there is no guarantee that the attacks are about to stop.

The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga gave government up to Tuesday next week to respond to the concerns of the boda boda riders.  She noted with concern that the majority of those being killed are women trying to fend for their families.
