A total of five hundred victims of the Bududa landslide who were left out of the relocation exercise are crying out to government to rescind its decision and relocate them to Kayunga district.
The group was left behind in Bududa after they resisted attempts by government to resettle them in Kiryandongo refugee camp in Masindi district.
Michael Makayi, the leader of the group says resisted to be relocated to a refugee camp because they felt it was the duty of government t to purchase land and resettle them in an area of their choice.
Makayi however says government has decided to ignore the group forcing the victims to return back to the villages where they are facing threats of another landslide.
Makayi claims that a majority of people who were relocated to Masindi are not from Nametsi where the March 1st landslide took place. He says the genuine victims of the landslide are those who want to be relocated to Kayunga.
He says government should come to their rescue by taking them to Kayunga where they had preferred to be relocated to during consultations with the prime ministers office.
But Wilson Watira the Bududa LC5 Chairperson blames the group for blocking the relocation exercise through a civil suit. He explains that the group resisted to be relocated to Kiryandongo by filing a lawsuit which is still pending in court.
Watira says the victims even left Bulucheke IDP camp and returned to their villages before the relocation exercise started.
He says the people who were relocated to Kayunga were identified by their area local council officials as bonafide victims.
