IN a mighty show of solidarity, city booze war heroes have formed a clique on Facebook to effortlessly beat drink drive cops. The group that calls itself ‘Breathalysers/Traffic Cops Alert’ is headed by businessman/ Fireworks Advertising company PR director, Muhereza Kyamutetera. They have vowed not to retreat nor surrender their love for the swallow to traffic cops who terrorize drunkos in late night swoops.
This group which already has over 512 members and still counting has devised a way to use the social networks to warn fellow members of any eminent danger or roadblocks. Apparently, they are even planning to train their own cops who will move around the city over the weekends updating members of where the cops have stationed such that they avoid being trapped like antelopes in headlights.
The group’s mission thus reads, “You have either been detained, fined or stopped for drink driving. Even if you don’t drink, you know a friend who has had a rough time with the traffic cops. Don’t suffer or let your friends suffer. You can warn them in advance about traffic cop presence on their road, by simply updating this group, if you see any cops/roadblock at night. Invite your friends to join this group so that we can keep out of danger.” It was no surprise that after the weekend without any incident, the group boss, Kyamutetera updated his status that; “Good night members. Hope you all survived the weekend cops/breathalysers. We look forward to a fruitful week ahead.”
Some of the prominent members that are subscribed to ‘Breathalysers/ Traffic Cops Alert’ include; businessman Tayebwa Thomas, socialite Zari’s sister Zuleha Hassan, ex Monitor Managing Editor Conrad Nkutu, NTV’s Maurice Mugisha, motor-mouthed Independent Magazine boss Andrew Mwenda, embattled Brig Henry Tumukunde, businessman Kwame Ruyondo, Capital FM veteran presenter Alex Ndawula, former UPDF Airforce boss Moses Rwakitarate, European Union media boss Simon Kasyate among several others. Let’s watch and see how the cops will beat this group at their own game!
