Samuel Ssenku Kimuli, the Kasese District Deputy Chief Administrative Officer says there is need to do some research on top of the mountain to establish why only the eight rivers that originate from the top of the mountain flood at the same time. He says government must take keen interest to attain latest information on the nature of the water base on the mountain.

Geoffrey Sibendire Bigogo, the Kasese District boss says the re-occurrence of the floods in the district remains a key worry to the social-development of the district. 

Bigogo says government and the district have initially tried to put in place flood control measures, but heavy rains have destroyed them. He notes that there is need for a hydrological study to establish the current nature of the mountain in relation to the floods.

The chairperson says that rivers that usually flood originate right from the mountains while those at the base do not flood.
