KAYUNGA- An estimated 2000 people in Kayunga District have been left homeless by floods due to heavy rains that have led to overflow of water from River Ssezibwa and Lake Kyoga since August this year.
According to Kayunga Woman Member of Parliament Aida Nantaba the affected communities are Ntimba, Kawongo landing site, Bweyale, Namalere in Galiraya Sub County Kayunga District.
Hon Nantaba said the Roads, agricultural gardens, grazing areas and homes have been submerged by water.
