There was complete chaos including fist fights and tearing of shirts this morning at Kaunda ground in Bardege-Layibi division, Gulu City during the distribution of 10.5million shillings by the Deputy speaker of Parliament, Jacoub Olanya to Boda-boda motorcyclists.
10,050 Boda-boda motorcyclists turned up at Kaunda ground for a meeting at around 9:00am with the deputy speaker who later handed the money to Simon Wokorach- the vice chairperson Gulu City Boda-boda motorcyclists association.
Wokorach tried to convince the Boda-boda riders that the money would be given to them later though their stage masters but this fell on deaf ears.
Robert Ojok, a cyclist from Kirombe custom corner says members feared that the money would disappear.
Francis Lee, another Boda-boda cyclist says the cyclists did not trust that the office would fairly distribute the money to members.
Wokorach, the vice chairperson Gulu City Boda-boda association attributed the chaos to lack of organization among members.
Gulu city Boda-boda association has a total of 19,000 registered members.
