The Municipality of Busia in conjunction with the judiciary through the Environment and Lands Court (ELC) today conducted a market clean up at Soko Posta and surrounding areas.

The activity was to celebrate 10th anniversary since the establishment of Busia law courts.

The Municipal Manager, Kenneth Nabulindo, who spearheaded the activity stated that market clean up happens daily and today’s exercise was geared towards enhancing public participation in solid waste management.

“It is our hope that this activity eventually improves the cooperation between the public and state agencies in solid waste management,” he said, adding that it was necessary for the traders to set aside a day for such an activity.

The manager also called for the proper use of the segregated waste collection bins and skip bins within the municipality.

The cleaning was done from Huduma Centre to Y.M.C.A & Soko Posta market and it involved sweeping and collection of waste which was later transported to the dump site at Alupe.

The traders expressed their delight at the clean up exercise and promised to uphold high standards of cleanliness.

“We are happy with the work done today and we know it will improve our businesses,” Wilkister Musundi, a trader at Soko Posta, stated.

The Municipality has been making deliberate efforts to improve the working conditions of the traders within its jurisdiction, with open air cooking having been eradicated and the respective traders relocated to designated safe zones.
