DC bans night motorcycle rides over insecurity

BUSIA
By | September 6th 2012

A District Commissioner has banned motorcycle operators in Teso from operating after 9pm.

Teso DC Josephine Onunga said the move had been taken to step up security in the area and to minimise movements at night that  were impacting negatively on the security of the area.

Speaking at Aleles in Amagoro division, Mrs Onunga said that any motorcycle operator who will be found operating at night, unless under emergency situations will face the law.

She noted that security officers in the area had discovered that criminals were using motorcycles to escape after committing crimes and asked the operators to desist from being used by thugs to terrorise residents.

The DC cited an incident at Kocholia where a businessman was attacked by thugs who were armed with a gun, and later escaped in a motorcycle. She called upon youths in the area to avoid engaging in violence and advised them to engage in and practice commercial farming to generate income and improve their lifestyles.

She also asked the area residents to invest in long term projects like real estate which she said could give them a life long income. 

She asked the Malaba town council and Teso County council to plan for the town centers in the area in order to have all structures constructed  with physical plans to ensure they were in the right places.
