Some farmers who used to live in grass thatched houses in the Southern Province have now been forced to sleep with their animals in the same house after authorities in their area pull down their grass thatched houses. Elias Biseruka is 40 year old who is married with six children.
He lives in a village called Kaburanjwiri of Cyebero cell, Ntongwe sector of Muhanga district. He told Contact FM that at the beginning of this week, local authorities demolished the grass thatched houses in the area.
We are still trying to reach out to the local leaders in the area and the ministry in charge of eradicating the grass thatched houses under the campaign dubbed “Bye bye Nyakatsi” for their reactions on the issue, and we will let you know as soon as we get more information in our subsequent edition.
