At least sixteen households in Base camp Lower and Katonzi cells in Kasese Municipality have complained of being allegedly left out from the list of victims to benefit from the resettlement programme despite being affected.

Currently, government is in the process of resettling the people who were affected by the floods that hit most parts of Kasese district when the major rivers streaming from the Rwenzori Mountains burst their banks.

Jafari Kigutia, the Chairperson Local Council I for Base camp Lower and John-Baptist Bukombi from Katonzi cell today morning displayed a list of 48 affected persons to the press and said they had been left homeless.

The duo said after losing their property to the floods, the affected persons sought refuge at Base-camp Primary School but were later asked to go to their relative but to their surprise, their names did not surface on the list of people to be resettled.

Nathan Maghulhu and Mary Karumela, some of the affected persons argued that it would be unfair for government to compensate the rest and leave their group that has continued to live a miserable life.

Responding to the issue, the Kasese Deputy RDC, Joshua Kisembo Masereka, said it would have been better for the leaders to use the right channels to present their grievances.
