Entebbe residents in areas of Nkumba, Katabi, Abayita ababiri, Kasenyi among others in the early hours of Thursday were left homeless after a heavy rainfall poured and swept off their properties among which were homes and school dormitories.
Giant trees fell down and cut off Entebbe Abayita ababiri road, destroyed people’s cars including those that belong to government. Police quarters were destroyed, electrical poles fell into people’s houses, school dormitories were left roofless, bill boards were left down.
Nkumba primary school is one those government schools that was terribly affected. Class rooms, teachers’ hostels, boys and girls dormotories were left roofless. This is a government aided school with over a thousand of students . Head teachers have embarked on mobilizing old boys and girls to contribute on its restoration.
It’s should be noted that the government pays 5_8$(18000_28000sh) for each student in nine months.
Parents requested the government to renovate this school asserting that the buildings are to old as they were built during the reign of the former president Idi Amin dada.
Many residents were seen working collectively to remove trees that had earlier cutoff the road in Kasenyi and Bayita ababiiri
