A downpour accompanied by hailstorms has ravaged several parts of Bunyangabu District destroying more than 5,000 gardens. Among the crop gardens that were destroyed include; beans, maize, cassava, coffee, Irish potatoes, potatoes, tomatoes, sorghum and onions that were ready for harvesting. Goats, too, were not spared by the rain. Ms Jackline Chance, a mother of seven children in Kyatwa Village, Kibiito Town Council, said Bunyangabu residents depend on agriculture for a living. Ms Chance on Monday survived death after part of her house was destroyed by wind. (NB Video report starts at the 6.50 minute mark)
