Following last week’s heavy downpour in the area, River Suume burst its banks forcing a large mass of water, and rolling boulders down the slopes in Bukalasi, Bududa.
These destroyed and washed over 139 households and 43 lives have been lost.
Bududa is known among the top disaster prone areas in the country but calls from government for people to relocate to other areas have always fallen on deaf ears.
