Operation ‘No to mushikashika and touts’: 3 710 mahwindi ARRESTED!


In a major law enforcement operation aimed at curbing the pervasive issues of mushikashika (illegal public transport) and touts, police across the country have arrested a staggering number of offenders, further clamping down on these persistent problems.

On June 10th, 2024, a coordinated effort dubbed “No To Mushikashika and Touts” resulted in the arrest of 217 touts, bringing the cumulative total of such arrests to a remarkable 3,710. Concurrently, 828 motorists were apprehended for their involvement in mushikashika activities, adding to the existing tally of 12,482 arrests in this category.

The latest sweeping crackdown underscores the government’s relentless pursuit to restore order and address the long-standing challenges posed by the informal public transport sector and the predatory practices of touts. These illicit activities have long plagued commuters, contributing to issues of safety, traffic congestion, and the undermining of legitimate public transportation services.

The authorities have vowed to maintain the momentum of the ongoing operation, promising continued vigilance and a relentless pursuit of all those who engage in these unlawful practices. The message is clear: the government is unwavering in its commitment to restoring order and reclaiming the public transport landscape for the benefit of all citizens.
