The fate of about 172 registered traders operating business in Kasubi Market still hangs in balance since the traders do not know when they are moving and where they are relocating.

In a meeting which they held with Kampala minister Beti Kamya in Kasubi, the traders through their chairman, Ronald Zibi said they are ready to relocate once the Government secures them a place.

Zibi told the minister that the road works on Kasubi-Nakulabye were already affecting some traders.

“We are not yet sure of our fate, we are ready to move, but there is no gazette place which the Government has come up with. The traders are in dilemma,” Zibi told the minister.

The chairman LCII Kasubi Zone, George William Dungu told the traders told them that both the market and school should be retained, as they are important projects to the residents.

“We should ensure that the school children continue with their studies and the traders operate normally, Dungu said.

Kamya told the traders that they will not move until the procurement process by Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) is complete.

She also accused the leadership of the market of misinforming her office that the market is occupied by 892 traders, yet the registered trader by KCCA is 172.
