Nine people have been seriously injured in the Buluckeke mudslide in Eastern Uganda and 15 houses have been buried, the Uganda Red Cross has confirmed.

The Spokesperson Catherine Ntabadde told New Vision Monday afternoon that they are yet to ascertain the damage caused.

A statement issued by Uganda Red Cross said heavy landslide occurred in Bumwalukani Sub County burying Namaga and Bunakasala villages.

The Uganda Red Cross has sent a team of volunteers to assess the situation and establish the number of people affected although local authorities said there could be about 80 people in each of the villages.

URCS Secretary General Michael Richard Nataka is also on ground to support in the conducting of a rapid vulnerability capacity assessment.
