The Prime Minister’s communication specialist, Julius Mucunguzi says the team from the disaster preparedness and management department will carry out an assessment of the affected people before relief aid is delivered.

He has however reechoed calls to people leaving on the slopes of Mt Elgon to vacate when rains begin because they are at greater danger and need to relocate.
