Mwanga’s Lake on a death bed heavily polluted with latrine and waste matter


Kabaka Mwanga’s Lake wetland almost gone.Mwanga’s Lake is on the threshold. It is heavily polluted with latrine and waste matter that comes from the neighboring residential facilities and the slum. One hostel on the western part of the lake is releasing its waste direct into the Lake. A new development has sprung up on the eastern side. They first dug a trench to release storm water direct into the lake.

Mwanga’s Lake is on the threshold. It is heavily polluted with latrine and waste matter that comes from the neighboring residential facilities and the slum. One hostel on the western part of the lake is releasing its waste direct into the Lake. A new development has sprung up on the eastern side.

After Pastor Kayanja allegedly fences off the wetland at Kabaka Lake in Ndeeba more people have dug holes to fence off yet more land.Could any person here ask Pastor kayanja to save this lake?

Destruction of the wetland spells danger for the lake for silting and sedimentation with garbage, and mud will go unfiltered from the wetland. People have dug a drainage channels to take rubbish and affluent direct to the lake.

This lake services place as far as Bombo in Luwero.Unfortunately, people at Mengo protect the lake instead of its water sources and drainage (catchment area) which is far more important in the lake preservation.

Hopefully, some one on this forum will ask the environmental police to do something. My interaction with the police post here made me aware that the police was actually very scared to do anything even though they were well aware of what was happening.
