Four people from the same family have been confirmed dead in Bundibugyo district after mudslides covered a house in which they were sleeping on Sunday evening.

The mudslides followed a heavy down pour which lasted for about three hours. The incident took place in Kasanzi village in Ndugutu Sub County.

Tom Ndyanabo the Red Cross manager Bundibugyo identified the deceased as Kahuju Manda, 45, and head of the family, his 3 children Chris Baluku, Gloria Muhindo and Crescent Bwambale.

His wife only identified as Thungu, 30, and their 5-year-old children have been admitted at Bundibugyo district main hospital in critical condition.

Godfrey Mucunguzi the Resident District Commissioner (RDC) Bundibugyo advised the people living in high risk areas of Mt. Rwenzori to take refuge in the lower lands.

"Up hill is so risky because the mountain has developed cracks. There are fears of more landslides as the rains set in"he said.
