Residents protest illegal destruction of their gardens
Residents of Kakooga A, Rugaga, Rubalika A and Rubalika B in Rwimi Sub County in Bunyangabu District are protesting illegal destruction of their gardens and plantations by the district environment team.
The district environment team led by the Bunyangabu District Environment officer Edgar Muganzi cut down hectares of food crops along river Nyamuhagura on Friday.
However, their actions have since been condemned by farmers whose gardens are outside the 30 meters from the stream as recommended by NEMA.
However, the Bunyangabu District Environment officer Edgar Muganzi dismissed the allegations as false, saying they acted in accordance to the amended law.
