Police Friday joined KCCA enforcement officers to evict vendors and patrol Kampala streets.
Kampala Capital City Traders Association, KACITA, and street vendors have been up in arms the whole of this week over a violation of the deadline given for them to leave the streets.
According to KACITA, the streets ought to have been cleared by the end of the festive season.
The vendors remained adamant saying they would not leave until the government gave them a solution.
On Wednesday KCCA and Kampala City Traders Association (KACITA) in a meeting agreed on a joint operation to relocate vendors from the streets.
This would in turn allow shop owners run their businesses without interruptions.
KCCA executive director, Jennifer Musisi, then wrote to the Police requesting for security during the exercise codenamed: ‘restoration of trade order and sanity’.
This morning, Police and KCCA enforcement officers launched the operation and kicked all vendors out of Kampala.
