At the time when the Uganda economy is in a very bad shape, the dictatorship of Uganda has mercilessly destroyed- confiscated merchandises that belong to small traders, and viciously evicted the most hard working Ugandans from their only source of livelihood. The Free Uganda political organisation strongly condemns the unjust and barbaric treatment of Kampala street vendors by the criminal regime of Yoweri Museveni and his Kenyan collaborator Beti Kamya.
The anti indigenous small businesses by the Rwandan Migrant turned Uganda dictator, Yoweri Museveni and his Kenyan accomplice Beti Kamya, is criminal.
Their flimsy excuses of evicting all street vendors from city streets as a way of creating sanity in Uganda’s capital, is nonsensical.
When Beti Kamya that has been officially working for the dictator for less than six months says “the street vendors had led to confusion, congestion and noise pollution which had bred insecurity and violence in the city. All illegal street vending activities will not be allowed to continue and government therefore directs all street vendors to vacate streets, road reserves, open spaces, carriageways and side walks forthwith.”, you then wonder if she’s indeed working for Ugandans or her fellow foreign parasites??
The reality of Kampala should be blamed on population explosion and bad city planning by the colonial administrators, as Kampala town was originally built for the English and Indians. That’s why we have Old Kampala and new Kampala. There’s also no official report citing Street vendors as the cause of insecurity in Kampala.
Free Uganda extends its solidarity to all street vendors:
- Street vendors have a right to earn an honest living like any other Ugandan.
- Street vendors are an important part of their communities.
- Street vendors deliver many benefits, both to themselves and to their communities. For starters, since Street vending has low start-up costs, it expands economic opportunities. As a result, these entrepreneurs can create new jobs and make a living to support their families, all while at a fraction of the cost of starting other ventures.
In addition, Street vending unleashes the possibility of upward mobility. Street entrepreneurs can gain more capital to potentially expand their business.
On top of that, Street vendors provide “eyes on the street,” making streets safer. As one urban scholar put it, “A well-used street is apt to be a safe street.” Street vendors can attract people to shop and move outside their home, making communities more vibrant and less hazardous. Plus, since many street vendors are out on the streets for many hours a day, they can help monitor for potential crime.
Our advice to Beti Kamya, is to stick to giving blow jobs to dictator Yoweri Museveni, and leave hard working Ugandans alone. Is that really too much to ask?? Malaya Gwe, tuvile kubantu baffe!!!!
