Government has bought several chemicals to handle the problem of Jiggers in Busoga region.
Leaders have been crying out to government on the jigger scourge which has even been forcing school children out of school .
Adult victims have also been becoming less productive because of the jiggers .At the peak of the infections ,several NGO’s tried to intervene but their efforts could not completely drive out jiggers out of districts like Mayuge ,Kamuli ,Namutumba ,Busembatya and Bugiri.
The government’s response to the almost ignored crisis came after continued calls by Bunya East MP Waira Kyewalabye Majegere who said jiggers are even killing people in Busoga .
