Masaka Municipality is the dirtiest town in the country, resident district commissioner Bamusede Bwambale has said.
He said the garbage littered on the streets gives the town a foul stench.
Bwambale said the blocked sewage system and traffic congestion made the situation worse.
He was closing a two-week national environmental journalism course organised by the Makerere University department of Mass communication at Hotel Brovad on Saturday.
Flanked by Dr. Gorette Nasanga, the university head of Mass communication department, Bwambale blamed the municipality leaders for poor garbage management, adding that the media should expose the problem.
Nasanga said the high rate of environmental degradation in the country called for collective effort to avert the situation.
She said journalists had been identified as key players in the protection of the environment.
Nasanga said Makerere University, sponsored by Sida, had embarked on an extensive training programme for journalists to specialise in environmental reporting.
She said media training programmes on environmental journalism were being conducted in East Africa, Rwanda and Burundi.
