Ugandans resist relocation plan

Government wants to shift 500,000 people in danger of mudslides, weeks after a disaster.

    The Ugandan government wants to relocate half a million people living in danger of mudslides, following the disaster in the Bududa area earlier this month.

    But with at least 300 people still missing, many relatives are refusing to move until their bodies are recovered.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from Nametsi in Bududa, at the heart of the devastation (23 March 2010).
