KAWUKU - Residents of Kawuku trading centre, raised their eyebrows with surprise when children and staff of Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC) besieged their neighborhood armed with spades, brooms, gloves and wheel barrows.

Early morning pub patrons were seen sneering at them with disgust as they picked polythene papers, dead pets in advanced degrees of decay and foot wear.

“This Bulungibwansi (volunteer) exercise is due to comb the entire country,” said UWEC executive director, James Musinguzi.

“We are preaching and asking the people to clean up their neighborhood and trash the 'Tusaba gavument etuyambe' (ask government to salvage us) gospel.”

Musingizi added that, while requesting for a clean environment, let the residents begin by cleaning their backyards.

“That way, government can deliver skips and a lorry to help dipose the nauseating scents,” said Agaba.

The area LC 1 Chairman, Calvin Mutyaba said joblessness, petty crime and population increase are a challenge that need immediate attention.

Time check; 8:00 am and youths were seen gambling, playing pool or returning home with red coloured eyes.

“I urge people to do any job that puts food on their plate first,” advised Mutyaba.

“There are jobs at Rosebud, Ugarose and Alarm plantations but my people want a fat fortune in a short time. Easy life without hustling is what they call it.”

UWEC education officer, Frank Ruhirwa observed that the venture being under taken is not a small one.

Pupils of Unique Primary School talked to their peers about the advantages of cleanliness.

“You will spend less money and time with the doctor,” tipped Sarah Nabuzi.

“You will not have absent days from school because of sickness which is preventable” added Tracy Namakula.

Brenda Nakato said with cleanliness, the residents will live a longer life to see their great grand children.
