It should be remembered that earlier this year, the minister for weather warned Ugandans about the expected heavy rains later in the year and particularly asked people living in mountainous areas to vacate before it’s too late since it would cost them dearly more than those living on flat grounds.

Although this is not the first time Bududa has experienced landslides. The most remembered one happened way back in 2010 whereby over 200 people lost their lives and government has been urged on a couple of times to find flat place in the same areas of Bugisu where they can relocate these people from mountainous areas permanently and resettle them on the flat grounds.

The death toll for this recent Bududa incident is reportedly said to be around 40 including children and some claim they’re still looking for their missing relatives and friends, according to New Vision.
