Mudslides have wreaked havoc in Bulucheke sub-county in Bududa district. The mudslides, which occurred around 5 am on Thursday have left a trail of destruction in Nakhatore and Bweli villages in Bunanzushi parish in Bulucheke sub-county.  

The mudslides followed persistent rains that have continued to pound the area. Gardens of onions, cassava, coffee, tomatoes, bananas, and trees among others have been destroyed.  

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.  

Janet Bisikwa, a farmer says that her tomatoes had reached the harvest stage but have all been destroyed by the landslide. Julius Kakala, one of the affected residents says that the mudslides swept away all his crops. 

He has asked the government to come to their rescue instead of waiting for them to lose their lives before they come. Peter Kuloba, the Bunanzushi parish councillor, says there is a visible crack, which they expect to cause more havoc when it rains. 

No district officials had reached the mudslide site by the time of filing this story.
