Residents of Mwanjari Cell in Kabale Municipality this morning decided to take action against one of their own, who they accused of poor hygiene.
Joram Natukunda, a samosa vendor was on Tuesday morning dragged to Kiruruma River and forcefully bathed by angry residents, who said they had had enough of his agonising body odour.
Joram Owomugisha, the leader of area vendors said that in order to preserve the standard of their business, they resolved to maintain good sanitation at their work places.
“We vowed to discipline whoever appears to work without the appropriate cleanliness and this guy was one of them. He frequently appeared here with a strange smell so we resolved to find a solution,” he said.
“Our battle is to see that whoever does not meet the expectations of this business either leaves or faces our harsh hand,” he warned.
In his defence however, Natukunda denied accusations that he was not showering, but rather said that he had delayed to wash his underwear.
After the shower, Natukunda was whipped 7 times to encourage him to take daily showers.
