Iganga-Born Again Christians have cleaned the streets of Iganga municipal council as part of the celebrations to mark Uganda's 56th Independence.
The exercise started on Monday morning with sweeping of the Highway, Ssaza ,Wagoina and Assle Roads in Iganga municipality. The Christians also cleared the blocked drainage channels.
Pastor Jotham Talemwa of Bethel healing centre Iganga, who led the Born again Christians during the cleaning exercise said, they decided to take up the campaign as part of celebrations to mark this year's Independence Day.
Talemwa said they discovered that most of the drainage channels along the High way and other roads had been blocked due to delay by authorities to carry out maintenance exercise.
Ten other pastors across eastern region took part in the cleaning exercise.
The deputy mayor Iganga municipal council, Enock Ndhazula hailed the Born Again Christians for the initiative.
Ndhazula said Iganga municipal council lacks enough manpower to ensure the entire town centre is rid of dirt and filth disposed by residents.
He urged locals to ensure the town centre is clean by disposing off their waste like plastic bottles and polythene bags in dustbins instead of littering them aimlessly.
The LC 3 chairperson Central division, Hajji Saleh Dyna urged the Born Again Christians to conduct the exercise on a weekly basis to ensure the town centre remains clean.
Dyna said residents of Iganga municipal council will be able to enjoy their Independence Day celebrations in a clean and secure environment following the clean-up exercise.
The Born Again Christians later held an overnight prayer meeting at Iganga municipal council primary school and prayed for peace in the nation.
