A boda boda rider has been fined 1.1million shillings  for operating without a  permit.

Azizi Ssekitoleko was found guilty by City hall grade one magistrate Moses Nabende for operating the bodaboda without a driving permit and  third party insurance.

While fining  him, the magistrate ruled that evidence adduced by prosecution’s  four  witnesses was sufficient enough to prove that  he committed the offense.

The magistrate however said that if he fails to pay the fine he should serve  a 14 months’ imprisonment in Luzira prison.

Prosecution led by Pamela Orogot states that, Ssekitoleko on July 28th2017 at Acacia Avenue in Kampala at around 9; 00pm was found driving a motor cycle without a driving permit and third party.

The convict was arrested by police officers from Kira road police station who were  patrolling the area.
