Flooding Cuts Off Main Highway Connecting Uganda to South Sudan and DRC

Kampala, Uganda | THE BLACK EXAMINER | Severe flooding has disrupted a major international highway connecting Uganda to South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), as confirmed by the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) on Tuesday.

According to the agency’s statement, the flooding has impacted the Olwiyo-Pakwach road in the northern district of Pakwach.

UNRA explained, “While the water levels are currently too high for any immediate intervention, our technical teams are closely monitoring the situation and are prepared to respond appropriately once the water levels recede.”

Motorists are advised by UNRA to use ferries on the Nile River to reach their destinations.
