The district chairperson Omar Muwaya Bongo, came up with with a sanitation week way back in 2011which he dubbed "Bulungi bwansi". This is an activity where the community comes together every last thursday of the month to observe sanitation and hygiene in their respective communities. This involves among others, sweeping,slashing, opening up drainages around trading centres and surrounding homes. mopping classes as well as health centers in the different sub counties of the district. During the Bulungi bwansi,the politicians, technical staff, support staff, religious leaders, development patners as well as civil society organisations all come together for this common cause and this has been successful throughout the years.
