Ronald Mutegeki, the Bundibugyo LC V Chairperson, says the District and local partners have offered what is within their means. He hopes that well-wishers and other partners can set a side something during this festive season for the flood victims both in camps and to those staying with friends and relatives.
More than 1000 households in Bundibugyo are still waiting for assistance to rebuild their homes after floods destroyed their houses in July this year.
The floods that followed a heavy down pour ravaged houses and crops in Ntontoro, Kisubba, Busaru and Ngamba sub counties leaving hundreds of people homeless. For Ntontoro, River Humya burst its banks making the flooding even severe.
While unveiling the project, Dr. Sheikh Muhammad Irumba, the Kadhi Bunyoro-Tooro Region, said the hospital will have 8wards, laboratory, mortuary, staff quarters, mosque and conference hall. He said the facility will be open to all kinds of people including non-Muslims.
Benon Habarurema, the Bundibugyo District Traffic Officer, says the fatal accident occurred around 3pm. He says it was caused by a semi-trailor registration number UAU 180L loaded with timber from DR Congo that lost control and collided with two Bajaj motorcycles registration numbers UEX 326M and UEV 648L.
The cracks developed at Bubukwanga, just about six kilometers from Bundibugyo town. The construction of Fort-Portal Bundibugyo road was completed in 2013 with funding from the African Development Bank to the tune of Shillings 147 billion.
