Over 200 Park yard taders have relocated to Usafi market. This after Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) last week declared the market illegal and too small compared to the number of traders.
 
Usafi market chairman, Joseph Kagolo, confirmed that they had received traders from Park yard.
 
Other traders are said to have relocated Gaba market.  
 
“Some of our members who left have  found space in  Usafi and Gaba  markets while others have joined their colleagues who still have stalls at the Park Yard,” the traders’ general secretary, John Bosco Serunda said.
 
KCCA said Park yard market at Nakivubo cannot be located near another market (St. Balikudembe) which sells the same commodities.
 
Traders have been remitting a fee of sh25, 000 per stall a month to Nakivubo Stadium management.
