“Most people are now relocating to Kasese town as some of the infrastructure that was damaged by the floods is being repaired,” said a source.

Kule Nelson, a resident of Katiri ward told ChimpCorps that whenever it rains at night, residents don’t sleep but they gather outside fearing that the river might flood and claim their lives.

“We call upon government to quicken the process of directing the river so that water can go back to its original course,” Nelson pleaded.

Muhindo Jolly, a resident of Kyanjuki ward noted that some times the river has been showing signs of possible flooding and is confident that as the rains have now resumed, the river will flood again and destroy people’s property.

According to the Bulemba division chairman, Pascal Kasoke, the government should speed up the process of repairing bridges and roads that were destroyed during the May floods.

“Most of the roads and the bridges that were washed away by the floods have not yet been worked upon and our people are using make-shift bridges which they erected themselves,” Kasoke explained.
