From Kasubi, the President Museveni then moved to Kawempe, Kampala where he flagged-off construction works for Nakamiro and Lubigi channels respectively.
Nakamiro drainage channel is 3.28 kms long and works will cost Shs20.2 billion while the 2.5km-long Lubigi channel works will cost Shs62.6 billion.
Funded by the World Bank, the works are expected to be completed in 12 months.
The President said besides drainage, the government will also fix most roads to ensure safety of users.
He advised KCCA to use cameras to track people littering channels and the environment, ensuring that the culprits are fined.
Mr Museveni urged the city leadership to fumigate swampy areas for the comfort of those living nearby and insisted that they crack down on corrupt enforcement officials and the police.
“The enforcers are corrupt, they are taking money from people and beating them. This must stop!” the President warned.
