The disagreement stemmed from a recent impromptu visit by municipal leaders which found fecal matter littered behind most of the buildings and drainage systems. Sewerage was flowing directly from buildings into open drainage channels while hotels were found operating in unhygienic conditions.

He maintains that the continued spill of human waste into the river is a manifestation that National water has failed to execute its mandate.
A water shortage has hit Southern Division in Kabale Municipality after Nyangorogoro Gravity Flow Scheme stopped distributing water to schools and peopleâ€™s homes.
