The flood affected widows cry out in Kasese

Whereas the government continues to force flood victims out of the IDP camps in Kasese, many don’t have homes to go to as those who one would otherwise think they have, houses are in the midst of the water.

It is evident that when the floods recently hit Kasese more than 4000 homesteads were swept away by the water leaving others submerged.

Salt TV  visited Kanyangeya village in Kasese Municipality were we found two widows whose houses were submerged despite having been told to vacate the camp where they have been living.

Musiime Robinah, a single mother of five, says to raise the money to buy her plot of land and construct a three room house she had to first sell off her land in the village. All efforts have gone limping due to the floods.

Robinah seeks to be helped spotting any well-wisher in the country, saying currently she has nowhere to put the orphans.

Kisembe Fatumah is another widow of ten children whose house was a threat to life even before the floods, but now that it’s submerged the situation has worsened.

Fatumah asks good Samaritans to come to her rescue before the situation gets out of hand.

The woman area councilor representing Nyamwamba division to the district Harriet Kabugho called upon the government to for rescue in time.
