Nyamitanga Division Chairperson Moses Karanzi Kajubi says the move to manually remove the water weed should be supported instead of being criticized. He says that they intend to do the cleaning of the river at least once a month, by pulling the water weed out of the water and cut it into pieces so that it dries up.
Bright Muhumuza, an environment activist says that the manual removal of the weed spreads it further. He adds that there is special equipment that is used to remove the weed instead of the irresponsible removal using rudimentary means.
Kaberebere Town Council Chairperson Patrick Kajuba says that the initiative may be having good intentions which may, however, be spoilt by the mode of implementation.
