A boda boda rider engages a police man in a fist fight

Rival boda boda operators staged a fight on Saturday paralysing traffic in Wakaliga-Nateete, a Kampala suburb.

The fight started when members of the Boda Boda 2010 Association led by a one Abdul Kitata launched a raid on offices of a rival association called Century Rider’s at their offices in Wakaliga.

Armed with pangas, hoes, sticks and machetes, the boda riders clashed in a titanic fight and burnt their opponents’ motorcycles in the process.

Police was forced to move in and fire live bullets in order to disperse the warring factions and restore calm.

Several operators were also reportedly injured in the heavy clashes.
