01 Jul 2020 · More than 30 fishponds built by government through Operation Wealth Creation, Youth Livelihood and other programs have been submerged in Kadungulu, Bugondo, Labor, Pingire and Kateta Sub Counties.
The three have been identified as Kabugho Jenness, 50, Masika Enid, 38, and Biira Michelle, 9, all residents of Kiryango village, Bugoye sub-county in Kasese district. Another minor identified as Biira Mackline, 7, is still missing.
According to Robert Ndyomugabe, one of the survivors, they were sailing near Karambo landing site when the canoe lost control and capsized. He says that the boat could have capsized as a result of the strong waves.
The seedlings were donated to NFA Gulu branch in October last year by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees-UNHCR to be distributed to refugees and their host communities in Lamwo and Adjumani districts.
