“Assessors indicated that the city generates over 2500 tonnes of garbage every day and therefore on Saturday we are going to move to all areas of the city and clean it,” explained Lukwago.


He noted that the sorry state of the city would lead to a break out of diseases like cholera and therefore noted that this has to be prevented by cleaning it.

Lukwago further condemned the manner in which Jennifer Musisi had conducted herself and closed business at the City Hall and noted that it was an act of impunity by the latter.

“She has no power to close down a public office because she is just the head of public service at the Authority,” stressed Lukwago.
