VIDEO: Shock as KCCA Officers Batter Mother, 2 Kids

A horrible amateur video showing Kampala Capital City Authority enforcement officers battering a woman carrying two young children has emerged.

The video that was uploaded on social media platforms mainly facebook and twitter on Friday night has gone viral attracting condemnations from hundreds of thousands of viewers clicking almost every passing minute.

Half a dozen KCCA officers pounced on the yet to be identified woman at downtown Kampala where she was selling merchandize in likely a non-selling area.

She was brutally grabbed with a child of about 1 year tied behind her back, visit ferociously dragged on the mud for about 6 meters and outrageously thrown into the double cabin pickup.

The vehicle later sped off towards KCCA headquarters in the city center as astonished onlookers remained speechless on the streets.

The KCCA leadership and vendors have been in conflict since last month when the authority ordered them off the streets of Kampala.

The vendors who were not offered alternative selling area rejected the move and remained on the street pavements, visit walkways and under the veranda of shops and offices.


The Executive entered the matter and the minister for KCCA, stuff Betty Kamya appealed to the vendors to abide by the decision and stop selling on the street.

Her appeal however fell on the deaf hears as vendors continued with their activities.

In the last week of October police was forced to use live ammunitions and teargas in downtown Kampala to quell the situation that was getting out of hand between vendors and KCCA enforcement officers.
