The heavy downpours in Bugonga Entebbe have left over five hundred people displaced after Lake Nalubale waves swept off Bugonga Landing site today’s afternoon.
Daniek Rwot, an eye witness told the parrotsug online publication that heavy rain downfall started at about 5am in the morning and by afternoon, water waves had stormed the areas.
Its not the first time heavy lake winds and waves hit this time. A couple of weeks ago, similar waves washed away a mosque at Bugonga landing site.
Mr Kayanja Depaul, the Mayor Entebbe Municipality has advised all people living on the shores of the lake to evacate the place before more challenges are faced.
“All living on less than 200metres of the lake shoreline as per NEMA standard to vacate before more harm is experienced,” said Kayanja.
Lake Victoria water levels started increasing its volumes in March this year. Experts said that the water volume had increased by 13.32 metres urging all people cultivating on the river banks to stay away from the practices as it threatens both the environment and lives.
Entebbe is one of the areas mostly affected by increased water volumes of Lake Nalubaale (Victoria). This site recently published a story on the heavy floods that washed away Nakiwongo Landing site in Entebbe leaving vendors in the main market stranded.
