“Remember a health body is a productive body, when they produce then the town will grow and we shall shift to middle class as a nation”, town clerk said.
The health inspector Kagarama town council Mugisha Abel reminded all land lords shift from using pit latrines to toilets since Kagarama has enough water supplies for the cause.
Mugisha noted that in near future all building owners will be forced to construct toilets with a provision of emptying.
