Poor waste management in Arua municipality is crippling business activities in some areas.

The businesses around Arua regional hospital are registering low sales due to pollution from the poorly disposed wastes.

The manager of Kudrass hotel Mike Tedrous noted that his customers have quit his hotel due to the stinky smell.

The garbage is dumped in a recreational place. Lillian a restaurant operator in that area explained that during rainy season, there is no business.

Meanwhile Musa a business operator around the hospital said that the disposed waste is now blocking the access route that the vehicles were using.

However, Jamila who works in Mombasa restaurant urges the municipality to get a better place for disposing the wastes.

A compost plant has been established in Ewuata for proper waste management but no proper actions have been taken to transport the said garbage.  End
