President Museveni has faulted Ugandans living in wetlands and mountain areas for the disasters that have befallen the country in the recent past.
His comments come after more than 20 people perished in floods and landslides in Bundibugyo district and another nine in the Mt Elgon region in the district of Sironko.
Museveni who has condoled with the families of the deceased says such disasters have been caused by people who insist on living in areas that God did not intend for human habitation.
In a live tweet chat, he has asked the people of Bundibugyo and Sironko who are living in wetlands and steep slopes of the mountains to accept resettlement just like it has been done for Bududa victims who were relocated to Bulambuli.
He has also appealed to those cultivating in the wetlands to stop and embrace fish farming instead.
Earlier on Tuesday, the landslide survivors in Sironko District cried out to government for lack of food, shelter and beddings since they were displaced.
The over 260 survivors are currently living in the temporary shelters at Bugimagu Primary school.
The Simuma Parish LC2 Chairperson, Robert Mabusi, says government has neglected the displaced people.
However, the Sironko Disaster Committee Chairperson, Robert Nambadi says the Office of the Prime Minister will deliver relief items to the affected residents, soon.
