Suubula.com, Uganda’s fast-growing online marketplace, which provides space for listing of local products and also delivers ordered essential supplies to homes and offices, has welcomed the extension of boda boda’s operating hours to 5:00pm.


The marketplace’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Camble Hope, said the president’s decision will “breathe new life in the delivery business” in the country during the COVID-19 lockdown.


President Museveni yesterday said after a review, it was decided that bodas operate till 5:00pm.


The motorcycles’ movements had been restricted to 2:00pm.
Camble said “thousands of Ugandans were unable to make and receive their orders due to time constraints.”


He added: “Now delivery motorcycles and tuk tuks have more time to meet the demand for deliveries.”


Suubula was recently listed by the National Information Technology Authority (NITA-U) as one of the main electronic solutions to help in mitigating the impact of Coronavirus.
