“Overall, there’s an increased likelihood of above abnormal rainfall over most parts of the country and near rainfall in most parts of karamoja and southern cattle corridor” she said.

Addressing the media, kitutu said Ugandans should be ready for el nino rains and avoid loss of lives.

“My job is to warn, when I say Jinja road is going to flood, go home early. Western parts of central Uganda have been experiencing isolated outbreaks of showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue” she said.

Kitutu urged schools and hospitals to put in place strong structures as they head into this season to avoid threatening scenarios.

She also said that with the increased el nino rainfall, Ugandans should be wary of increasing malaria upsurges, livestock diseases as well as increased vectors. She cautioned residents on around mountainous areas  to seek low lying areas for temporary accommodation if they are to be saved from landslides.
