Tembea Salaama traffic campaign has started to bite hard in Kampala Metropolitan Area.
Following the deteriorating discipline and lack of respect for traffic and road user safety guidelines by the public, Kampala Metropolitan Police Traffic Commander, SSP Musinga Norman, has resurrected the sleeping gladiator operation “tembea salaama”.
Musinga stressed that the operation is to tackle cases of wrong lane driving, drink and drive, indisciplined road users including government vehicles, a crackdown on vehicles customised with sirens and security roof lights, driving permits, traffic light violation, etc.
The operation is meant to work hand in hand with the Fika Salaama operation that is already on going on the major highways.
He was quoted to have said, “We cannot sit and see the traffic management in our city rot.”
He asked the drivers to drive responsibly and obey the traffic rules or else face the wrath of the traffic police.
Meanwhile, the Commander Kampala Metropolitan Police, CP. Frank Mwesigwa, has ordered for a two-week timeline for clean-up operations in areas of Abaitababiri, Nkumba along Entebbe road.
Speaking at a community policing meeting he appreciated the togetherness and cooperation by the public.
He highlighted on a number of issues that include an intelligence based criminal list of 50 people suspected to be terrorising and jeopardising the peace of the people of Entebbe.
He tasked the joint security teams to commence on these disruptive operations which are going to be spearheaded by him with effect from tonight.
