Katikiro Charles Peter Mayiga defends the arrest of Nsenene vendors on Uganda Airlines

Buganda Prime Minister Katikiro Charles Peter Mayiga has come out in defence of the two vendors of Nsenene on Uganda Airline over the weekend.

This came after a video of these two men made rounds on social media which annoyed the Minister of Transport and Works Gen Katumba Wamala.

On the return of these two men who had gone to Dubai to buy phones for sell, were immediately arrested by Uganda Police that Katikiro Charles Mayinga failed to understand.

He took it to his social media platforms and showed his dissatisfaction with Uganda Police arresting the men that saw an opportunity of business and decided to use it.

“I fail to understand the fuss about Paul Mubiru vending nseenene on a Uganda Airlines flight to Dubai. All airlines vend lots of things in-flight. I have witnessed passengers doing forex exchange transactions on board many times. It’s common to see passengers carry their own food onto the plane – which is cleared by the ground crew. Travelers on buses always vend food and other items. If the carrier disapproves of vending they should simply state so – otherwise those who bought the insects appreciate their taste. Mubiru could be adept at salesmanship. No need to stir up a storm in a tea cup. CPM said was wrong.”

It should be noted that these two men were charged with three different cases and now looking forward to face the charges.
