Most shops in Kampala remained closed on day one of the strike which is to last for three days with some traders around Kisekka market playing football and netball in the roads which would otherwise be very busy with traffic on a normal day.
Business in other parts of the country is going on normally though security is deployed all over to ensure law and order. There's heavy police presence in and around Kampala as most traders are juts outside their shops looking on.
The traders in Kiseka market are using the chance to appeal to the authorities to release the Buganda Riot victims who were arrested in 2009.
Meanwhile, the latest from the KACITA PRO Issa Sekito has confirmed that some traders are already withdrawing their money from the banks though some of the banks are not worried about the move now that it's not only traders that bank with them.
The President is likely to meet the KACITA leaders later in the day.
