Three rivers Nyamwamba, Nyamugasani and Mubuku in Kasese have burst their banks following heavy rains causing floods.

An elderly woman and a baby are among two people who died in a stampede at Kilembe Mines Hospital, as patients fled the flooded hospital on Thursday morning.

A total of 195 patients who were receiving treatment at the hospital have been evacuated to other government facilities, Dr Peter Mukobi, the district health officer told New Vision.

Kilembe Hospital has been temporarily closed as emergency response teams assess the situation, according to the health ministry’s spokesperson, Rukia Nakamatte.

Last year, at least eight people were killed when flash floods cut off parts of Kasese district after River Nyamwamba burst its banks. Kilembe Mines Hospital which was flooded was temporarily closed after equipment and buildings were destroyed.
