There will be no smoking and use of polythene bags (Kaveera) at this year’s Kampala city festival.

Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) spokesperson, Peter Kaujju, announced the ban on Wednesday.

He called for eco-friendly mechanisms to intending revelers.

“We want people to embrace measures that focus on protecting the environment. So we are looking forward to limiting anything that affects our environment,” he said.

This year’s Kampala City Festival is slated for October 4, 2015.

It is the fourth edition of the Festival, since its inauguration in 2012.

This year’s event, according to Kaujju, will run under the theme ‘Color.’

“Dumping bins will be situated at every point to prevent unnecessary disposal of waste,” he said.

The annual event will feature different activities that include: exhibitions, music performances and competitions concerning climate change.

Last year over 2 million revelers attended. 3 million people from all parts of East Africa are expected this year.

It will start as early as 6:00 am to Midday.
