Floods displace 700 people in Uganda

30 November 2015, 14:54 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - At least 700 people from 107 homes in eastern Uganda's Teso region have been rendered homeless due to severe floods in the area.

Those affected are from the villages of Alele, Achoma and Wawina.

''The floods have made over 700 people to abandon their homes and take refuge at the sub-County headquarters. They have lost hundreds of their domestic animals including cows, goats and pigs,'' said police officer Rogers Amulen.

A local leader, Philip Osio said that for the last one month it has been raining heavily in their area. He added that in the last one week it has been raining non-stop thus resulting in the floods.

''Apart from the domestic animals dying, we have also lost all the food crops. Cassava and sweet potatoes have rotten underground while millet and sorghum have been washed away,'' said Osio.

He appealed to the ministry of disaster preparedness to come to their rescue.

An official from disaster preparedness ministry, John Mpoza said they are sending a team to study the situation on the ground before sending aid.
