"There is a lot of environment destruction in Kakabara because people are not sensitized, wetlands have been destroyed due to agriculture this has caused a lot on climate change in the sub county. We request concerned leaders in Kyegegwa district to follow and handle this issues seriously” Said Agaba victor during the rural radio debate.
Victor added that we have failed to benefit in operation wealth we request program coordinators to come on ground and teach people about the program at village and community levels. 

“Most houses in Kakabara don’t have toilets this has contributed to poor hygiene in the whole sub county. People dump rubbish on the road side, some use road side to ease themselves and soon when rain starts we suspect to have an outbreak of cholera. In this case we  request district health officer and team to work on that”. Said Kandole Jonan from Kakabara during the rural debate.

We request duty bearers to work hand in hand with community leaders to solve such challenges”. Said Ayebale Christopher during the rural radio debate in Kakabara trading centre.
