Voters in Kamwokya have tasked candidates vying for different elective positions to improve on the hygiene and combating crime in the area.

The residents of Green Valley, Church Zone, Kisenyi 1 and 2, Kifumbira zone, Mulimira and among other areas argue that the sanitation in the area is appalling and likely to result in an outbreak of diseases.

They also want the candidates to explain their plans for addressing the rampant crime rate in the area.

Mike Kafureeka, a resident of Kisenyi 2 says, their area is filled with garbage due to lack of a garbage skip. Kafureeka argues that it is also risky to move past 8 pm due to insecurity.

According to Kafureeka, the incumbent leaders have kept a deaf ear on the plight of the residents.

Charles Kiwanuka, a businessman in Kifumbira zone, says that the candidates should work with Kampala Capital City Authority-KCCA and put in place a physical plan.

Cue … anywhere they find”//  

          

Esther Oineababo and Irene Nakimuli both businesswomen said that candidates should plan on how they would deal with the major issue of poor sanitation and theft in an area.

Robert Abigaba, a contestant for LCIII Councillor Kamwokya II Parish promises to address insecurity in the area through establishing local defence personnel to solve this crime. He also says that he will lobby for garbage skips and ensure that waste is disposed of.
