The relationship between the community of boda boda riders and the security minister Gen. Elly Tumwiine has turned out to be bad, following his statement that discredited the boda boda services in the country.

While meeting members of e- trade association that included the administrators of online boda transporting companies at his office in Kampala recently,Gen. Tumwiine said government would close businesses like internet and boda boda services, because they had proved a threat to the national security as wrong elements had started taking advantage of them to black mail government and promote crime ahead of the January 2021 elections.

Charles Ndugwa,a boda boda cyclist and presidential advisor on boda boda affairs told this website that, the senior Updf officer’s statement is outrageous and contradicting the president’s efforts geared to poverty eradication through wealthy creation.

“Hon. minister knows it very well that part of the information his ministry relies on to  secure the nation is provided by the boda boda cyclists”,Ndugwa said at the sidelines of the Kampala Central Division Boda Boda Stages Owners meeting at Old Kampala on Saturday.

It was on note that he called for his immediate resignation, saying his remarks were negatively impacting the government.

Ndugwa wondered as to why the outgoing army mp representative would discredit their work which he knows very well that it is recognized by the president,when he made Boda Boda donations to the riders in Makerere.

” I was appointed by the president to be his advisor on boda boda affairs,so when the minister plays down our services he morass questions the presidential decision for my appointment and to others”.

Ndugwa said, at one time the president used a boda boda to rush for his nomination exercise at the electoral commission, which all justifies their essence.

Francis Nalwaaya-chairperson for Ldc stage-Makerere noted that, the security minister is one of the persons that went to the bush to fight for freedom, and therefore he cannot be seen violating their economic rights which they fought for.

He emphasized the importance of dialogue between government and boda boda riders as way of resolving their differences if there was any as opposed to the visible aggressive approach.

Joseph Habiyaremye the chairperson for Kisenyi Lc1 Kiganda Zone-Malinga road said they had been committed to mobilizing support for the president in the recently concluded elections, and this therefore justifies their usefulness to the government.
