             The President at the Bududa Landslide Scene
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.
 
Help Trickles in
MTN Foundation donated 100Mn followed by Tullow Oil also giving 100Mn through the office of the Prime Minister. The National Oil Company joined hands with USD 50,000 which will be sent through the Chinese Embassy here in Uganda.
 
Legislators from the ruling party will contribute 200,000/- shillings each and will push for a supplementary budget to take care of the Bududa victims.
