KAMPALA- Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) has relayed out a plan of developing the infrastructure around Kampala and has ordered vendors who are working on the walkways of the city to vacate immediately.
While speaking to journalists in a press conference on Thursday, the Acting KCCA Executive Director Eng. Andrew Kitaka revealed the plan to make Kampala different through infrastructure development but this will be easy if street vendors have shifted.
Vendors who work from Kampala streets and walkways have now been advised to vacate before they are evicted.
“Vendors are not supposed to work from streets, if they have come back, they are breaking the law and we are going to take necessary action,” Kitaka said
Kitaka said that vendors who had returned on the streets of Kampala soon after the KCCA Executive Director, Ms Jennifer Musisi, tendered in her resignation, its high time they vacate.
“In November 2018, walkways that include Market Street, Burton Street, Dustur Street, Luwum Street and Ben Kiwanuka Street that were covered by vendors were cleared but right now people have continued to occupy them.”
He, however, added that KCCA is to work with political figures to make Kampala a great city with good infrastructure.
“We shall endeavour to work with the political persons through consensus and we shall do our best and work with them harmoniously as we take our programs forward,” he said
This warning comes after many vendors started flocking the streets and have been leaving garbage in the middle of the roads.
