KALERWE Market vendors on Gayaza road have expressed dissatisfaction over the poor garbage management in Kawempe Division.
During a recent sanitation tour, residents continually yelled complaints to the division leaders, including the sub-county chairman, Haji Nasser Kibirige Takuba, about floods caused by stagnant garbage in drainage channels.
â€œThe water has turned into a breeding ground for mosquitoes,â€ said David Nkubuge, a market vendor.
â€œThe channel was last cleared in October 2008. The division officers wait for a year to unblock the channel after our health has been endangered,â€ he added.
Takuba said: â€œThis is an appaling situation which we have to solve with the technical team in-charge of sanitation and drainage management.â€
He added: â€œThis is a wetland. If KCC is to go by the National Environment Management Authorityâ€™s regulations, over 50,000 people would be homeless.â€
