KAMPALA — The Minister of Works and Transport Gen. Katumba Wamala has warned special groups of people against misusing the stickers issued to them by Government.
While issuing guidelines that will be followed by vehicle owners to acquire stickers that will be used in this period of the coronavirus lockdown, the minister noted that some people have begun taking the stickers for granted, including forging them
Gen Katumba said companies that qualify for the stickers are medical service providers, telcos, pharmaceutical companies, utility providers, food production companies, fuel stations, firefighters and so on.
According to the minister, only motor vehicles that are meant to operate in the Greater Kampala Metropolitan Area, which covers Kampala, Entebbe, Wakiso, Mpigi, and Mukono, will get stickers.
“Any vehicles operating outside these geographical boundaries will be impounded by police and other security organs and offenders will be prosecuted accordingly,” the minister said.
There are provisions to acquire stickers when operating outside the above region, but you’ll have to put that in writing.
