Kalangala Residents Request Installation Of Water Pumps At Landing Sites

Mawaala landing site residents have sent requests to Kalangala leaders to push for the installation of water pumps at every landing site.

They advocated for this with the aim of increasing their odds of beating the fire outbreaks that have recently become very rampant.

The islanders revealed this during a meeting held with their legislator, Moses Kabuusu, and the district chairperson, Rajab Ssemakula. 

Both leaders said their piece while giving the residents relief items after losing their property in the June 10 fire.

A one Robert Mugerwa urged the leaders to look into the many firefighting systems within the landing site.

“We can’t have fire brigades but our leaders can buy water pumps for every landing site to fight fire outbreaks,” said Mugerwa.

The islanders reportedly use cups, basins and jerrycans to put the fire out in case it blazes despite some who just look on while property burns.

The residents whose houses were burned down received iron sheets and shs1.2 million for timber to reconstruct their houses.

Ssemakula, the district chairperson said they can’t replace everything that perished in fire. This is why they chose to provide the basic requirements used in the reconstruction of shelter.

MP Kabuusu appealed to islanders to desist from constructing temporary structures of camps for permanent well-planned structures.
