Uganda: Kayunga leaders arrested over latrines

ABOUT 26 people, one of them a sub-county councillor and four LC1 officials, have been arrested for lack of pit latrines [and taken to court]. This follows [an] operation by the Police led by the Kayunga sub-county health inspector, Abasa Kaneha.

[…] Most of the residents did not have pit latrines and many, including the NRM chairman for Nakaseeta parish, Andrew Kalyango fled, Kaneha said. “We will arrest anybody irrespective of which leadership position they hold. We plan to cover the entire sub-country,” he said.

Kaneha said the operation was meant to ensure that the cholera outbreak that was reported in Kayunga town would not spread to the villages.
