BULIISA:The Member of Parliament for Buliisa constituency Allan Atugonza has donated over 200 reflector jackets to Boda- boda riders as part of his efforts to reduce road accidents in the area.
The donation comes at a time the traffic Police is cracking down on all boda-boda cyclists riding motorcycles in the country without reflector jackets, helmets and PSV permits.
The jackets were distributed to the riders at their respective stages in Wanseko, Kisansya, Buliisa town council and Biiso on Thursday.
While distributing the jackets, the legislature explained that the donation is aimed at easing the Boda-Boda`s operations since some riders acquired their motorcycles on loan.
Atugonza also pledged more jackets to the riders that he said would soon be distributed.
He however asked the Boda-Bodas to respect the traffic laws by observing the road signs in order to avoid the road accidents that have claimed many lives of Ugandans.
