“There will be no toxicity in the surrounding, you will breathe cleaner air and take fresh food that is more useful to your body,” said the Kabale Resident District Commissioner, Moses Mathew Elayu.
Mr Elayu made the remarks at Jofan Country Hotel in Kabale town during a Progress Review in Dissemination of baseline Findings on Integrated Water Sources and Management at Kibaya sub catchment area during the weekend.
He said a polluted environment has many health hazards like increased infiltration of the sun’s ultra-violet rays that results from the depletion of the ozone layer which is hazardous to man’s life.
“If we conserve the environment, we will be able to enjoy long and healthy lives since these hazards will be absent,” Elayu added.
Speaking at the same event, the Kabale District Chairman Mr Patrick Besigye Keihwa hailed the dioceses of Kigezi water department for its efforts to supply gravity flow water in the surrounding areas.
“Working with the dioceses for Kigezi to supply clean water for the good of our people is our wish as the district local government and I therefore call for cooperation as we serve our people,” Keihwa said.
Keihwa noted that clean water supply will be given much attention by district local government to ensure that people in Kabale district live in good health.
