Residents in Kitagata sub-county were shocked when a man demolished a neighbour’s latrine over a mobile phone recently. The man, only identified as Byamugisha had gone to answer nature’s call from a neighbour’s latrine.
As he was leaving, his phone slipped through his hands and fell in the latrine. He begged neighbours to assist him to get his phone to no avail. Not wanting to lose the phone, he demolished the latrine and got out his phone. He however refused to reconstruct it. This prompted the owner to report the matter to the LC officials.
The local council chairman ordered Byamugisha to construct the latrine or he would be taken to Police and jailed. He has since not been seen in the village.
