Kazo: Boda boda cyclists to increase transport fares

Following the presidential state of the nation address delivered by H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on Tuesday, a section of boda boda riders in Kazo town council have expressed concern and dissatisfaction over the fuel prices remaining high. 

The riders say that they expected the president to take about the high fuel prices whereby currently petrol and diesel are sold at UGX 6,190 per litre in Kazo.


Zakayo Gujwire, one of the boda boda riders told Kazo FM that they have been forced to increase the transport fares that they demand from passengers to see how they can survive with their families urging the government to thoroughly look into this matter.

Zakayo added that they are no longer working for their families but working only for their bosses.

Robert Nuwamanya, the chairman boda boda health centre IV stage, said they expected the solution from the President’s address and since this failed, they are also going to increase transport fares soon.

Currently, transport fares are as follows;

No.DestinationPrevious fare(UGX)Current fare(UGX)
