An army rescue tea has recovered the bodies of nine more people who died in the March 1st landslide in Bududa. This brings the number of confirmed dead to 104.
The bodies were found seven feet under the rubble and mud.
Lt. Col. Wilson Kabera, commander of the recovery operation, says most of the bodies found at the landslide site in Nametsi are of children. He says Nametsi residents have failed to identify the bodies and it is possible that since the landslide occurred on a market day, the dead were merely visitors to the area.
Lt. Col. Kabera says the Office of the Prime Minister is providing logistics to give the bodies a decent burial.
The final excavation of Nametsi was expected to take two months, but Lt. Col. Kabera says the operation has delayed because of continuous heavy rains in Bududa.
