Over 600 sweepers on Tuesday afternoon laid down their tools, saying they had not been paid for the last four months.
The town clerk, David Naluwayiro, said they had received sh800m from the Ministry of Finance to pay them.
â€œWe have the money in the bank and we are to pay them starting this morning at the KCC hall,â€ he said.
Naluwayiro said this was the last time they were using casual labourers, adding that they were in the process of hiring a firm to take over the cleaning of all city roads.
