Ugandans criticise gov t after Bududa landslide kills at least 40

At least 40 people died when floodwaters triggered by a landslide in an Eastern Uganda town, destroying homes and burying livestock, local media reported. The landslide, which followed heavy rains, struck Bukalasi, situated on the slopes of Mount Elgon, on Thursday afternoon. “Most of the people were caught at the market, the landslide pushed huge boulders into a river which burst its banks and the water swept away the people,” said Commissioner for Disaster Preparedness and Management Martin Owor.
