Residents of Opano and Nduru villages in Nebbi town have threatened to burn down the Town Clerk's home, if they are blocked from reconstructing their homes which were burnt down by a fire early this month.
Nine hundred people were left homeless and property worth hundreds of millions of shillings lost, when a fire razed down 250 huts in the two villages.
The residents say that efforts to reconstruct their houses have been frustrated by the town council.
The Nebbi Town Clerk, Stephen Anecho told the residents during a meeting on Thursday that the Town Council has drawn up a new town plan and will not allow semi permanent structures. He says the grass-thatched houses will be demolished without any compensation to the victims.
The Opano residents however complained that they had lost a lot of property and were unable to raise money to construct permanent houses.
But Anecho insists the Town Council will go ahead to enforce the new town plan.
