LOCAL council officials in Kabarole district will enforce a law where every household will be required to maintain proper hygiene and have a banana plantation.
The production and environment management ordinance law, which seeks to improve food security and household incomes, was passed by the district council last year and approved by the Attorney General.
In an interview recently, Richard Nyakaana, the district secretary for production and natural resources, said the implementation of the ordinance had started and urged residents to comply.
â€œSince the local leaders know the people in the villages, they should help the district supervise the implementation of the ordinance law,â€ he said.
Other provisions in the law include proper planning and maximum utilisation of land and fighting idleness among the youth.
Nyakaana said residents had three months to comply, after which they will pay a fine of sh20,000 or face one-month imprisonment.
He said the aim of the law is to eradicate poverty, illiteracy and diseases in homes, livestock and crops.
