One of the residents, Saubah Namuwaya told URN on Friday that they always have sleepless nights whenever it rains because their houses get flooded with water and their properties get destroyed. This has forced many to shift to other areas.

Fred Kasozi, Mwale Kabugo and Haruna Kabugo said that they left their houses because whenever it rains they cannot sleep and they put the blame on those who raised the road when they were renovating it.

They need the concerned people to help them so that they can get back into their houses with their families.
