The fire inspector in the Mtwara Region, Steven Changanga, has forcibly locked the side mirrors on the driver of a bodaboda motorcycle named Ramadan Mussa, who was arrested by the regional traffic police for deliberately removing the mirrors.

Speaking to reporters at his office, Senior Police Force (SSP) coordinator Emilian Kamuhanda said they have found many motorbike drivers deliberately remove the side mirrors from their containers on the pretext that the houses they live in have small doors so that they can find it challenging when storing them.

However, he said the arguments were unfounded and arrested all those who do not have them and fined them according to the law.
