Following the complaints from members of the public, the Nyarugenge authorities have warned the law enforcement staff to be careful and professional while apprehending street hawkers and to make sure that they are always in uniform when on duty.

The Vice Mayor in charge of social welfare , Jean Marie Ndayisenga told IGIHE that the people in charge of law enforcement are DASSO staff and all other supporting staff must clearly be identified. She said " sector leaders have opted to work with vigilantes responsible for hygiene and security to enforce law, after being trained by security personnel.”

She acknowledged that there are some instances where vendors are mishandled but noted that all law enforcement staff are trained to act professionally and with restraint as those who err and mistreat vendors will be punished.
