Namisindwa District | THE BLACK EXAMINER | Over 40 people residing in three cells within Bubutu town council, Namisindwa district, have been rendered homeless due to a severe storm accompanied by heavy rain.

These affected cells include Busiraka, Bumaina, and Buwatiti, all situated in Bubutu town council. According to Martin Walubenge, a resident directly affected by the incident, the storm struck on Monday evening, persisting for two hours. Regrettably, it resulted in the destruction of more than 15 houses, along with crops like maize and coffee, as well as various trees.

Sam Wambete, another affected resident, disclosed that he and his five children sought shelter with neighbors after their home was completely destroyed. He appealed to both the government and non-governmental organizations for assistance, particularly in the form of iron sheets to facilitate the reconstruction of their homes.
