Ugandan Minister Says Traffic Jams are Good for Tourism
When traffic police withdrew from Kampala roads following media reports that they cause traffic jams, there was a huge and controversial gridlock. Tourism minister Godfrey Kiwanda is not worried, though. He says traffic jams are a tourist attraction. "Instead of going to the bars or church, you can decide to stand by the road and count cars and also watch how Ugandans drive," he says.
