Over 60 people are feared dead following the heavy rains in the mountainous region of Eastern Uganda, Bududa forcing the Minister for Disaster Preparedness Musa Ecweru to rush to the venue and assess the situation.

The landslide kicked off shorlty after the heavy downpour in the Mt Elgon National Park on Monday afternoon burying three villages "Everybody is dead. 320 people are unaccounted for. I don't know if we shall get any survivors out," Minister David Wakikona, MP for Manjiya County in Bududa said.

The number is expected to go above as the country is not well equipped to handle such situations as the tools being used are hand held hoes and other tools to rescue survivors to retrieve dead bodies. The are has been hit by landslides in the past but this particular one has proved to be more fatal.

Uganda Red Cross plus UPDF soldiers have joined the rescue efforts as survivors are told to evacuate the place. Analysts warn that other mountainous areas like Kasese and Kabale could easily follow suit.
