Boda boda operators storm the RDC's office, over police brutality

Boda boda business came to a standstill this afternoon in Kasese municipality after hundreds of cyclists stormed the RDC's office accusing police of brutalizing them in the evening hours.

Locals were seen today footing on different streets of Kasese municipality to their destinations work places after the cyclists had parked their boda Bodas at RDC’s office.

The boda Boda operators have threatened to retaliate at the officers who beat them up, saying they are tired of being brutalized by security.

Some of them demanded that the time allocated for them to have quit be taken from 6:30pm to at least 10pm or else they both be given the same time.

This they say creates equality between the transport operators like taxis and buses.

Baluku added that the newly recruited police constables have been fond of forcefully extorting money from them after they beat them up.

The deputy Resident district commissioner Joshua Masereka has promised to look into some of the complaints brought forward by the riders but insisted that the curfew time will still stand.
