The authorities in Kinoni sub-county in Masaka district have arrested 30 people for failing to construct pit latrines in their homes.
The Kinoni Sub County Chief, Badru Mayanja, says the 30 were arrested yesterday in a three day operation to crack down on families that have no pit latrines.
Mayanja says the operation which started on Monday is in response to the need to transform Kinoni from a trading center into a town council status.
Mayanja said efforts to attain a town council status have been frustrated by the low latrine coverage. He says Kinoni's latrine coverage at 45% is far below the percentage required by the Local government ministry to grant a town council status.
According to Mayanja, people found with no latrines will be taken to court and either be fined 10,000 shillings, or face a six months Jail sentence.
