Leaking sewage puts lives of Kabale Municipality residents in danger
Vendors and residents neighboring Garage Street Market in Kabale Municipality are protesting the failure by National Water and Sewerage Corporation-NWSC to repair blocked and leaking sewer lines in the market.
According to the vendors and residents, the leaking sewer line spews human waste which exposes them to diseases such as cholera and dysentery. They claim that ever since the sewer line broke on Wednesday night, no effort has been taken by NWSC.
Enid Arimanyire, a vendor in garage street market says they are worried that if the situation is not addressed soon, they may incur more losses because the stench from the sewer line has kept their customers away.
The Manager National Water and Sewerage Corporation-NWSC Kabale branch, Lenny Otai appeals for calm and apologized to residents
