The Bududa death Toll now stands at over 90 with little hope of finding people alive. Heavy rains are affecting rescue efforts. The roads are impassable and a slight drizzle triggers the fear that a landslide might strike again slowing down rescue operations.
Luck of appropriate tools is another stumbling block in the rescue efforts. The lady who called yesterday saying that she was with a mother who had just given birth has still not been rescued. However, her phone is not available and there is no network coverage.
The Minister of Disaster Preparedness says some 10Bn shillings has been set aside to resettle those affected by the mudslide. The exercise which is a temporary measure will take care of basic needs, social amenities, roads and relocating people from the affected areas.
