Kasese After the floods

By; E-Society 

Six months now after heavy rains terrorized some parts of Kasese District long the rivers of Mubuku, Nyamwamba and Nyamugasani which burst their banks leading to heavy floods which left many displaced and claimed many live of a few.

A number of measures government has put in place to recover from this disaster. Among these is resettling displace people back into stable homes and also repairing the damaged infrastructure.


A number of Organizations and donor agencies like Red Cross, save the children, Hima cement, Rweco and many more have come in to save the situation financially and materially. At the moment a number of bridges like Katiri Bridge on Nyamwamba River in Kilembe and Mubuku Bridge on Mubuku River are under their final stages of repairing.

 While Bulembya Bridge in Kilembe still and Kyalhumba Bridge on River Nyamugasani are still having temporary wooden bridges made by the locals.

We still hope government will do more to save the situation.
