Govt bans city vending

Government has banned all vending activities in the city advising vendors to relocate to several markets round Kampala which it says still have vacant stalls.

The move comes following pressure exerted by KACITA who complained that the vendors were denying then an avenue for business by vending similar products more cheaply.

Kampala Minister Betty Kamya told journalists at The media center that KCCA has now been empowered to carry out the operation to end all illegal vending.

Kamya rallied Kampala dwellers and political leaders to support the move.
