BUDUDA – More than 30 people have reportedly feared dead in the fresh mudslides that hit Bududa district in Eastern Uganda on Tuesday afternoon.
The mudslides affected the two villages of Namasa and Naposhi all in Bushika Sub-county, Bududa district.
A number of people are still buried in the soggy ground, and can hardly be accessed due to the shortage of personnel and equipment.
The tragedy follows five hours of consistent and heavy rainfall, on Tuesday.
Floods reportedly swept into 20 houses have and crop gardens. Most roads in the district have also been water-logged, making movement rather difficult.
