It is really a topic of concern when it comes to matters of sanitation. In Uganda, most especially in the Kampala city suburbs, people no longer care about the repercussions of poor dumbing of rubbish. Some people in Uganda have instances of dumping rubbish in drainage canals and alongside the roads.
On having spoken Peter Lubega, a resident in Wandegeya, about the poor dumping habits of people in Kampala, he gives reasons about such actions and says, “Ugandans have not been helped by those in power to locate for them a nearby dumping area, which makes them care free about where to dump their rubbish so long as it’s not in their houses. People are becoming hopeless and have no one being a good example to them.”
He actually accuses those in power for being responsible for people’s hopeless reflected habits. “The government has shown less concern about matters affecting Ugandans lives, so the ordinary person no longer cares about where he or she dumps rubbish or not. People no longer care if they fall sick or not due to poor dumping. They left their lives in God’s hands. People seem to be less patriotic due to poor leadership.”
He however recommends government to locate for Ugandans nearby dumping pits in different areas of residence so as to reduce on the problem of poor rubbish dumping habits.
