We, the residents of Hoima are not happy about the sewage treatment plant which was set up in our village. We received information that the National Environment Management Authority advised against this development after carrying out an impact assessment. Such a plant should not be set up in a residential area. We tried to raise this issue, but all our views were rejected. We are suffering with the foul smell and request the Government to intervene and save us.

::Buwenge devt plan a good move::
Many towns lack development plans and this is the reason why slums come up. Houses and markets are constructed anywhere, even in road reserves. Buwenge is one of the fastest-growing towns in Busoga and I am happy that it has now got a development plan.

::Stop illegal evictions in Goma sub-county::
Allow us, the residents of Ntinda LC1 Zone, Goma sub-county, Mukono district to express our concern over the illegal eviction of residents. These evictions are sanctioned by the Local council officials. A few weeks ago, the house of the late Paulo Kiwujjo was demolished with full knowledge of the LCs and over 10 people were left homeless. It seems our local leaders have failed to protect us.

::Water level surveys will stop flooding::
Following floods that have led to the collapse of bridges in the north and north-east, I advise the Government to carry out a water level survey before the waters recede. This will help in deciding the height of the bridges over the rivers in future. The idea is that the new bridges should be constructed above the current flooding levels.

::Namungoona road in sorry state::
Our road in Namungoona is in a very bad state and nobody seems to care. In fact, this is no longer a road, but a garden full of banana pits. We call upon the local leaders to come to our rescue.
