Uganda: Latrine Crackdown in Pallisa District

HEALTH officials in Pallisa district have launched a crackdown on family heads whose homes have no pit-latrines and rubbish disposal pits.

The move, said Wilson Namungha, the district health inspector, was prompted by the recent cholera outbreak in the area that killed nine residents in five sub-counties.

The home-to-home operation, led by Namungha assisted by the sub-county and community health officials, had so far covered six sub-counties.

Namungha said the goats confiscated from the errant homes would be sold for money to hire people to construct latrines for them.
