Floods in Bwaise in 2011.
Rain started at around 9pm on the 25th rained for two whole nights. Many households in Bwaise were flooded.
Though the area has experienced floods in the past, the situation has recently deteriorated. This is partly caused by more frequent and heavier rains (climate change) but also the reclaiming of the nearby swamp by The National Water and Sewage Cooperation, the swamps used to act as catchment for water whenever it rains but now water just rises and washes through people’s houses.
