Kampala City Council (KCC) together with National Environmental Management Organisation (NEMA) has intensified operations against noise pollution in Kampala.
These operations follow stun warnings concerning noise pollution that KCC and NEMA have been issuing both through the media and sometimes directly to the culprits of the operations but which warnings had largely not been taken seriously by the public.
The Acting Town Clerk of KCC Ruth Kijjambu has said in press statement that Ultimate Media has seen that over 10 bodies that have fallen victim of the operations some of which include California Bar and Restaurant, Gabba Beach Events and Kampala University among others.
Kijjambu says KCC has secured court orders against these bodies that were perpetuating noise pollution in Uganda and that KCC will revoke the licence of such bodies if they fail to stop noise pollution.
She says KCC and NEMA are determined to continue fighting this vice of noise pollution such that the rate of noise pollution in Kampala is substantially brought down.
