A police vehicle has been seen in Kampala streets taking people to their destination as the driver solicits funds from stranded travelers.
This follows Presidential directives banning all public transport in Uganda which has forced all workers either to foot to work places or use bicycles. The Police driver thus realized an opportunity that needed to be tapped.
In the video, recorded by people who were nearby, the passenger is seen asking the police officer to take him as he stands on the door of the car, the police officers then signals him to enter the van to which he does and then a lady in the front seat is seen giving the driver her transport fare and so does the man who has just entered.
The Ugandan police have not yet released an official statement about the trending video at the time of writing.
