Police and the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) on Tuesday embarked on a mission to decongest the popular trading area of Kikuubo in downtown Kampala.
Law enforcement teams from the two institutions clashed with traders who have repeatedly failed to comply with social distancing guidelines. 
Ever since the government announced a partial lifting of the lockdown in June, traders and customers have flooded the Kikuubo area in a bid to recoup the losses incurred during the three-months lockdown.
Kikuubo is one of the busiest business centres in Kampala.

KCCA's deputy spokesperson Robert Kalumba says the move is intended to prevent the possible spreading of covid-19 pandemic by compelling traders to follow standard operation procedures for resuming business.
 Meanwhile, in the course of the operation in Shauriyako, local council area chairperson, Bashir Muwonge, was arrested allegedly for obstructing KCCA, Police from executing their lawful duties.
"It's not proper to order vendors to leave a two feet distance away from the main road," Muwonge said shortly after his arrest.
The law enforcement teams also impounded some merchandise that was being displayed in the road, in the process blocking would-be shoppers and other people.
