Agness Nandutu, the Bududa woman MP and state minister for Karamoja affairs said resettling the people of Bududa in faraway places will not help them because they are used to their fertile areas where they can practice farming, adding that people were relocated to new environments where their productive farming skills and culture could not be applied like Kiryandongo and Bunambutye.
Joseph Nasaba, the LC I Chairperson of Nakhatore village, says that there are no human casualties. He says that he heard land sliding downwards and later confirmed mudslides had hit the area. He has asked the government to come to their rescue because they have lost all their crops.
Mutanje said they were lacking jobs as taxi drivers but currently the Bududa- Kampala bound taxi has employed some of them adding that if they clear the debt and finish it, they are hopeful that they will buy another taxi to add on the one they have now.
Godfrey Nambale, the Bududa Assistant District Health Officer says that currently most teachers have got their first dose waiting for the second. He appealed to them to refrain from social media (mis)reports and embrace the exercise like others so that they don’t lose their jobs as directed by the president.
