“We are ever disturbed by the Kampala Capital City Authority enforcement officers who don’t want us on the streets,’’ complained Kibuuka.
The traders said they miss free water services provided to them by the stadium management.
“I used to train from the stadium gym and after training we could use water provided for by the stadium,” complained Moses Atwine who runs a mobile money kiosk near the stadium. He also expressed concern over the closure of some of the stadium toilets.
However, other traders said they were not affected by the closure of the stadium by the Uganda Revenue Authority officials.
“Our customers still come the way they used before the stadium was closed and so it did not affect us,’’ said Musisi Paul a trader at Jesco Beauty Centre.
