Bugangaizi East county in Kibaale district MP hon. Onesimus Twinamasiko has launched a boda boda loan scheme in Kisita Hoima today to stop the rise of criminal acts in the bodaboda business in Uganda today.
Hon. Twinamasiko says that the youth in the bodaboda riding business face a lot of problems for instance they are robbed everyday yet the authorities pay a deaf ear.
“This loan scheme is going to help boda boda riders get loans to help acquire their own bodabodas and also if you are robbed it’s easy to get the loan and buy another bodaboda then pay later.” Hon. Twinamasiko said.
Twinamasiko adds that this loan scheme is going to help youth get work to do and stop the idleness which can influence the youth into criminal acts.
So far 200 people have registered for this program.
