Kampala is a musical city - full of entertainment and fun-loving people who will do almost anything as long as entertainment is guaranteed.
The Kampala City Yange management has decided to make their cleaning exercises more appealing by introducing an edutainment fun-packed and musical event dubbed the "City Yange experience".
The Warid-sponsored event was launched last Friday by Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago in Makerere Kivvulu as the first City Yange activity this year. The addition of the edutainment after-party is to lure the public to actively participate in the cleaning exercises.
"Every event will be tailor-made to target the interest of the particular community in a way that appeals to them, so as to get them on board," said Isaac Rucibigango, the Kampala City Yange Manager.
The event features dancing, singing, acting and sports activities in which participants get to win prizes such as airtime and phones, among others, from Warid. This is before the participants are treated to a barbecue and drinks. Musicians will also be an integral part of these functions to entertain and to also educate people about hygiene.
Rucibigango further said that the funfair that will now accompany every Kampala City Yange cleaning exercise, is aimed at changing societies' behaviour and attitude towards environmental hygiene through their interests, culture and lifestyle.
