Last month, the Ministry of Disaster and Preparedness delivered 600 bags of rice, 200 Source pans, 100 tarpaulins to cater for about 1,450 residents affected by the fire.

Moses Bwogi the Koome Sub County Chief acknowledges receiving 300 bags of rice. He adds that has made and forwarded the report to the District Chief Administrative Officer James Nkata. 

Nkata declined to comment on the whereabouts of the consignment saying he is not answerable to the press.

However, the Mukono LCV Chairperson Andrew Ssenyonga says the remaining bags will be delivered to the affected residents.

“People must learn to be patient, as the district we lobbied for this consignment and we know how to distribute it. Well, we are still keeping the remaining part in our stores as we look for money to hire also fuel the boat that can transport the rice to Katooke,” Ssenyonga notes.
