Kabale – Residents of Kabale have complained over delayed the distribution of COVID-19 relief food by the district task force.

Marble Keburungi, a mother of three children, from Mwanjari who has been vending foodstuffs on a basket in town revealed that she spent 3 days surviving on roasted maize and water with her children with the little money and her capital or her small business depleted.
The Mother of 3 sought for a bag of maize flour to feed her children.
Darious Nandinda the kabale RDC who is also head of the taskforce says that they are still sorting themselves as even the food they have is little as still waiting some from the people have promised them.
Patrick Besigye Keihwa the kabale LC5 says as the political head of the district he is not going to allow people to die when there is food as he says that they are to begin distributing the food that they have in store as they wait for more to come in.
Keihwa ways that Tycoon Amos Nzeyi has contributed Ugx 10m for the district taskforce to buy beans and maize flour as they are to buy it today and they begin distribution.
