Government has revealed that the ongoing second season rainfall is heavy and above normal thus causing massive floods and landslides in the mountainous areas.

According to Martin Owor, Commissioner, Disaster Management in the office of the Prime Minister, the dangerous rains are likely to take 30 to 60 days.

He said by 30th October, the rains will begin to reduce but in the meantime he urged people whose homes are on steep slopes to shift to safe homes of relatives, friends, schools, churches or mosques.

Awor further stated that government and partners will continue to monitor the situation and deliver relief food and non-food commodities where necessary.

“The rains will be much lower in November/ December and people will then go back to their homes,” he said
