The mayor for Nansana Municipality Regina Bakite has revealed that the continued lack of financial resources to fund the municipality budget is greatly affecting the service delivery especially the health sector.
According to Bakite, the municipality remains battling poor hygiene due to absence of funds.
Bakite also noted that with the increasing population in the municipality, it is sad that they only have one public toilet constructed years back in Busukama sub-county.
While officiating the commissioning of a 14-stance water-bone toilet constructed by Water Aid for Nabweru health center III, Bakite said that even the 2021/22 Municipality budget plan has not allocated funds for a single public place of convenience.
