Save Lwera Swamp - Greater Masaka Area, Uganda

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!

Citizens Concern Africa (CICOA) has raised the red flag over the ongoing expansion of rice fields in Lwera swamp in Kalungu District. Chinese investors trading under Zhong Industries Limited are currently expanding their rice fields near Lukaya Natural Rice Factory, a move that has a negative impact on the area eco-system, which would consequently affect the communities around.

Lwera swamp, which stretches about 20kms along the Kampala–Masaka highway, is a major water catchment area that connects several rivers and wetlands in Gomba, Mpigi and Kalungu districts and drains directly into Lake Victoria. Let's unite to stop Zhong Industries Limited from inflicting more damage to the swamp and environment at large.
