The municipal council has received 20 garbage skips. The skips were donated by the World Bank in conjunction with the National Environment Management Authority under the Clean Development Mechanism project. The municipal council also received a lorry, which will carry the garbage, and a tractor. Waste disposal is a problem in the town, with many residents dumping their garbage along the roads, which has caused an unpleasant smell in the town. The municipal environment officer, Gladys Natugonza, said the skips would be put in schools, hospitals and restaurants. Natugonza said the garbage would be taken to Kitere dumping site, where it will be turned into manure.
Clerics told to be exemplary
The Bishop of West Ankole Diocese, Yonah Katonene, has urged the newly-ordained deacons to lead exemplary lives. Katonene said the church was facing challenges because many of its leaders have not set a good example for the congregation. â€œWe need to turn to God. You must be good shepherds to your flock,â€ Katonene said. He was speaking at the ordaining of new deacons at Bweranyangi Cathedral. Katonene urged the new deacons to mobilise the people to return to churches, saying the number of people attending church was reducing everyday. â€œPeople are busy with work and other activities, you should encourage them to come to church,â€ Katonene said. He urged the deacons to instill the values of God into their flock, saying it was the only way the Church would survive the challenges of the world.
