KCCA Working on Policy to Charge Fees for All Private Cars Accessing the City Center

The Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) will soon deliver a draft policy to Cabinet making it a mandate for all private cars entering the city center to pay a certain fee.

Under the draft policy, all private cars will be charged a fee to be determined by the KCCA in addition to parking fees and other levies.

Betty Amongi the Minister for Kampala affairs say on told the Daily Monitor on Thursday that the draft policy that is still being worked on would soon be shared in Cabinet for discussion and once approved, it will then be tabled to Parliament for endorsement.

“You will be charged an amount to enter the city. If you have a private car, you will have to pay before you enter the central business district,” the minister said.

She added that once Cabinet and Parliament approve it, its implementations will be effected immediately.

Amongi justified the move saying it will help decongest the city center and boost its revenue.

She also said this method of operation may be new to Uganda but is being practiced since across some cities both in Africa and the world over.

The recommendation to introduce a fee for private vehicles between Shs5,000 and Shs10,000 per day first popped last year but was rejected by the motorists.
