Another Boda-Boda Cyclist Beheaded

Every day over 5 boda-boda cyclists get murdered and their motorcycles are stolen.

Lukwago Godfrey a boda-boda cyclist of Nyendo Masaka district, who is currently nursing wounds after he was knifed in the neck and nearly breaking it off.

Lukwago is unable to speak, Kawukyi a young brother who is taking care of him can not do much since he earns only 4000 a day as a toilet cleaner.

Kuwukyi related that Lukwago has been in the boda-boda business for a long time through which he has been able to look after the family and siblings.

Since Lukwago has started to rot at the public toilet which doubles as his young brother’s office, Habibu Buwembo together with other good Samaritans fundraised and took him to Rubaga hospital.

However, the cyclists vowed to express their discontentment by formulating a document and carrying to the speaker of parliament.

In the same way, the resident derided the police over arresting the killers and releasing them without being charged.
