According to Health Officials, owners of the closed buildings declined to construct soak away pits that drain dirty water and fecal matter direct to the sewer line.

Charles Ainebyoona, the Health Inspector for Central Division says that owners have been draining dirty water and faucal matter directly to the Council’s open drainage channel that is behind their buildings.

Ainebyoona says that health officials intervened after they suspected that there could be an outbreak of diseases like, Typhoid and Diarrhea.

He adds that the owners of the buildings were officially served with nuisance notice in August this year following several warnings to start constructing soak away pits, but remained adamant.

Andrew Beija, the Kabale Municipally Health Inspector says that the buildings will remain closed until owners construct soakaway pits.

Beija says that the operation will continue to crack down on other structures doing the same.

However, Pastor Tumwijukye denied being served with nuisance notice.
He says that health officials were not supposed to close his building yet he has already started constructing a soakaway pit.

Patience Ayebare a tenant at Pastor Tumwijukye’s building faults her landlord for not following the council’s directive.
