Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) will next month unveil new bodaboda stages in the city and a code of conduct for the cyclists.


The move is the outcome of last year’s controversial city bodaboda registration exercise.

“The registration exercise is being finalised and currently we are synchronising the results with Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) before we can roll it out,” said Peter Kaujju, KCCA’s spokesperson.

Last year, KCCA registered 60,000 bodaboda cyclists amid protests from cyclists who feared that the exercise was intended to throw them out of the city.

Kaujju said KCCA may not be able to accommodate all the 60,000 cyclists who were registered. He promised that details of a new programme will be shared with other stakeholders when the programme kicks off.
