Uganda and the Japanese government Thursday signed a US$14.5m (sh33b) grant agreement for promoting the resettlement of Internally Displaced People(IDPs) in Northern Uganda.

Finance minister Maria Kiwanuka who signed on behalf of Uganda said the grant would support Northern Uganda which faces a mammoth task to rebuild.

"It is a long Uganda journey which starts with a single step. A borehole built here and there will support women so they do not have to walk long distances," Kiwanuka observed.

FLOODS have displaced families in six districts in eastern Uganda. The affected districts are Bulambuli, Kween, Tororo, Butaleja, Bukedea and Amuria.

In Bunambutye sub-county, Bulambuli, the floods have displaced 24 families and ravaged the Sironko-Bulambuli-Nakapiripirit-Moroto road, cutting off communication along the route to Karamoja sub-region.

Ismail Wanyama, 32, of Buwala village said the floods knocked down his mud-and-wattle house, forcing him to relocate with his family to a relative’s home.
