Then, on December 8, 2003 at City Hall, Kampala, the Chinese Ambassador, Li Qiangming handed over 30 Jiefang garbage trucks to Finance, Planning, and Economic Development Minister Gerald Ssendaula. 20 of the garbage trucks were given to the Kampala City Council (KCC), with 2 each going to Jinja, Mbarara, Mbale, Entebbe and Masaka.
