Flooding caused by heavy rain has displaced more than 30 families  in Kyemamba Trading Centre, Lyantonde District and damaged several roads.

Several acres of crops have also been submerged, causing fear that the district might experience food shortage.

Speaking to the media at the weekend, the residents said the area has been experiencing heavy rain for the past couple of weeks.

James Baguma, the chairperson of Kyemamba Village, said that people are homeless now.

The flood cut off some of the roads connecting Lyantonde to other districts such as Lwengo and Ssembabule.

The most affected roads include Lwengo-Lyantonda-Sembabule road via Kyemamba and Rakai-Lyantonde-Sembabule road via Kasagama.
