Gulu municipal dwellers have decried the sanitary condition of the township which they say poses a risk to their health; they called on the district Mayor embark on a cleaning exercise and sensitise communities about “keeping Gulu tidy.”
However, the Municipal Mayor Mr George Labeja said that the residents must understand that the responsibility of cleaning the town in not only that of the municipality but of all residents.
Labeja said that Gulu Municipality should not be blamed for the poor sanitation in the town, adding that it is the same residents who have failed to put in place dustbins for garbage but opt to dump the litter anywhere and then blame the mayor’s office.
The Mayor added that the municipal council is drawing up bylaws that will regulate the unnecessary dumping of garbage and whoever shall be caught dumping litter illegally will be fined Shs20,000 shillings and landlords without dustbins on their houses will be fined Shs200,000 shillings.
