The Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development under the Uganda Support to Municipal Infrastructure Development Program –USMID with support from the World Bank has donated a new truck to Kasese Municipal Council.
The new brand TATA truck registration number UG029L has been attached to the Municipal Health Department to help in the daily collections of garbage in the urban centre.
While receiving the donation today afternoon, Zedekiya Kambasu Kayiri, the Kasese Municipal Deputy Town Clerk said the truck would add value to the health sector in the entire urban centre.
He, however, called upon the residents to always heap their collected garbage in one place where the vehicles could reach to simplify the work.
The Kasese Municipality Mayor, Chance Kahindo revealed that the donation was received out of stiff competition with other urban centres.
Kahindo also said they were still expecting one more vehicle from the Markets and Agricultural Trade Improvement Project –MATIP that would be stationed at Kasese Central Market for the same cause.
The Mayor happily told the press that the USMID program had been fully signed ready for implementation with effect from next week.
Lt. Joe Walusimbi, the Kasese Resident District Commissioner hailed the Municipal leadership for its hard work which according to him influenced government to consider their requests.
