Mwanga II Grade one magistrate Allan Nyakaana today (Wednesday) charged Century Boda Boda Riders’ Cooperative society chairman Sula Lubega with being idle at the offices of Boda Boda 2010. Century is the rival organisation to Boda Boda 2010.
On Monday, police arrested a number of riders who stormed, vandalised and burnt various Boda Boda 2010 offices in Kampala. Lubega, according to the charge sheet, was the ring leader of the group.
“Lubega and others still at large publicly conducted themselves in a manner likely to cause breach of peace, ” read the charges.
Lubega was also charged with malicious damage of property and office documents belonging to Boda Boda 2010 on Monday.
The state prosecutor Kulthum Mariam told court that investigations are still ongoing and asked for more time.
Allan Nyakaana adjourned the case to January 31 before remanding Lubega and others still at large to Luzira prison.
Following the arrest of Boda Boda 2010 chairman Abudallah Kitatta together with some of his members, riders in Kampala celebrated what they termed as the group’s downfall.
