MBALE - The Police in Mbale have impounded hundreds of bodabodas, whose riders had defied the curfew.
The operations, under the command of the officer in charge of Mbale Central Police Station, Douglas Kato, were conducted on different roads, including Clock Tower, Pallisa Road, Kumi Road, Bishop Wasike Road and Naboa Road.
The President directed that bodabodas are not allowed to operate past 6:00 pm.
Kato said the operations aimed at reminding cyclists about COVID-19 and that the presidential directives were still in operation.
"People had stopped observing the guidelines. It was as if the situation had returned to normal," Kato said.
