Kijungu residents decry stench from garbage site
Residents of Kiswahili, Byafura and Kijungu in Mbarara city are up in arms over the continued dumping of garbage and human waste in the area by unknown people.
The angry residents are calling for the urgent intervention of city health authorities, saying the practice poses serious health risks.
They are worried that with the onset of the rainy season, more waste will be washed down to their homes due to the poor drainage system.
However, the district health inspector Mildred Ahumuza, has told Crooze FM that the pipes used for construction of the drainage channel have not been replaced in a long time, thus calling upon National Water and Sewerage Corporation to consider replacing them urgently.
