Kampala City Council is looking for more than 300 million shillings to replace flower pots and gardens, which were destroyed in the recent city riots.
Flower pots and gardens in the city were vandalized by rioters during the three day riots that paralyzed Kampala last week.
Simon Muhumuza, the KCC spokesman says that KCC had just incurred more then 320 million shillings to put up the flower pots and gardens.
Muhumuza says the council budget for the flower pots had been exhausted and council has to find more, money to beautify the city.
Similarly Muhumuza says council had over the last four weeks carried out a massive campaign to clean the city. He says after the riots KCC has to do another cleanup, which will cost over 300 million shillings.
He says the money is needed to pay staff and mobilize equipment. The rioters littered the city and its suburbs with soil, garbage, boulders, bricks, tires and huge stones, which were used to block roads.
Muhumuza says that KCC also has replace pavements, barricades, road guards, rails, rubbish bins and road signs destroyed by the rioters.
KCC is in the process of assessing the damage to these public properties but KCC estimates that, the cost could be in hundreds of millions of shillings.
