Citizens tip government on ways to fight food crisis

Residents of Bushenyi Ishaka Municipality have advised the government on ways to fight against the food crisis.

The remarks were made as Uganda joined the rest of the world to mark the global world food day that was celebrated on Monday, October 16th under the theme “Water is life, water is food

Speaking to our reporter in an exclusive interview, Nathan Byaruhanga, the chairman of Bushenyi central market vendors said that in order to fight against the food crisis, the government should revise the land policy so that all unutilized land is used for agricultural purposes.

Byaruhanga also called upon the government to establish irrigation schemes across the region to ensure continuity of farming, hence increasing food production.

Jennifer Kekimuri, a resident of St Kaggwa, in Bushenyi Ishaka municipality noted that most farmers grow both food and cash crops, but they sell them all prematurely to meet their demands like school fees and medical bills.

Kekimuri added that people don’t have granaries as they used to be in past because they don’t have what to  store since all their agricultural products are sold to middle men at early stage to meet the high standards of living.

Julius Byamukama, the Bushenyi Ishaka municipality health inspector revealed as part of the efforts to ensure food safety, that they have launched a campaign to fight against the habit of covering food with polythene (kaveera) across restaurants and hotels.

Byamukama noted that they are going to do a spot check on all restaurants and hotels and whoever is found covering food with kaveera or not meeting food safety and health standards his or her license will be terminated.

Byamukama added that the practice is on the increase based on reports from the field and this puts the lives of people at risk of getting cancer.

The inspector said that they will not pass any warnings but will arrest any promoter of kaveera for the purpose of saving lives and the environment.
