President Yoweri Museveni has said that leaders who Mislead and encourage people to go against environmental plans should be punished.

Museveni in his eulogy message in regards to the 29 people who died because of the Sunday morning Mbale Floods said it was unfair for innocent people to die.

“Condolences to the families of our people that died in the floods of Mbale and parts of the Sebei region. All Ugandans are saddened by this loss. Quick recovery for the injured as God will hear our prayers,” he posted on his official Twitter handle

“This loss, highlights, once again, the dangers inherent in environmental degradation by cutting forests, invading wetlands, cultivating on river banks, throwing polythene bags in drainage channels, thereby blocking the free flow of water, settling in flood plains of rivers,” he added.

The cabinet, he said will next week, issue directives on all these issues that must be followed this time without hesitation.

“Why should Ugandans die needlessly and also destroy our environment? Leaders who mislead people and encourage them to go against the environmental plan should know that they are answerable to God for the death of these innocent Ugandans,” he said

He reiterated that the Government is sending relief to the displaced. May God rest the souls of the departed in eternal peace.
