MPs from areas ravaged by floods and landslides have warned of imminent famine and outbreak of waterborne diseases.

Bududa district Woman MP Justine Khainza, Labwor MP Micheal Ayepa and MP Samson Lokeris of Dodoth East in Kaabong district asked the Government to continue providing support to families.

“Government should avail emergency funding to provide essential household items, emergency medical services and water treatment to affected communities,” Lokeris said.

Meanwhile, Khainza objected to the Government’s plans to relocate some of the affected people in Bududa to Kiryandongo, saying transplanting people was affecting their culture.

“Let the Government buy land within the Elgon region to settle people in landslide prone-areas. This must be done without delay,” she said.
