At least six people have been killed and nearly 50 are missing in mudslides caused by heavy rains across eastern Uganda’s Mount Elgon region, disaster relief officials have said.

Dozens of homes and farms have also been destroyed during the downpour in the last two days.

The roads authority has issued an alert, urging people to use alternative transport while the debris on the highway is cleared.

A tweeter has posted images of some of the flooding on Tuesday:
