Kadaga decries poor hygiene at Nile source

Jinja. The Speaker of Parliament, Ms Rebecca Kadaga, has decried the poor state of sanitation at the Source of the Nile in Jinja which was recently declared an international tourism heritage site.
“My office recently hosted foreign delegates whom I brought to visit the Source of the Nile, but when they wanted to go for short calls, there was no place to use because toilet facilities were not there,” Ms Kadaga said.
She made the revelation while presiding over the closure of the four-day Busoga Investment Convention at the weekend.
The convention dabbed, Olwekobaano is an annual event organised by Busoga Yaiffe, an NGO, which unites Basoga from the Diaspora to chart out ways of developing the region.
Ms Kadaga urged the municipal council to act swiftly and improve sanitation at the tourist site, construct a good shopping centre and reorganise the stalls there.
The Speaker also tasked those who have a stake in Busoga to be more proactive in promoting the available resources if the region is to develop faster.

Root of problem

The town mayor, Hajj Muhammad Baswari Kezaala, blamed the stalled development projects on greedy rich people, saying they were intent on grabbing every small opportunity. Mr Kezaala cited the newly-reconstructed Shs28b Jinja Central Market whose occupation was hanging in balance amid bickering by vendors over leadership of a stalls allocation committee.
