MP DONATES REFLECTOR JACKETS TO BULIISA BODA-BODA RIDERS

By Onega Pascal

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.
