The signpost at Banda reads: Wetlands are wealthlands: Let them work for you.” It also states, “No encroachment, pollution, drainage and dumping.”

But in total violation of this order from the Wetlands Management Department is dumping of murram in the wetland that has been taking place at night within the last two weeks.

The wetland is on the road to Kireka that always floods during heavy rains

 

Mounds of murram are ferried to the area in the dead of the night

 

The wetland neighbours a fast sprouting complex of hostels and apartments
