Pictorial: State of Moroto Modern Houses

Comments 2109 Views Moroto, Uganda


Constructed six years ago by the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), the state Moroto Modern Houses is at stake. The modern houses were constructed for elders and vulnerable persons after recovering from warring activities in Karamoja. 

Each village with modern houses has 20 houses with two bedrooms, 10 kitchens and five pit latrines of four stans each. They were furnished with solar, bedding and house furniture among others. 

However, all the houses have developed huge cracks. Some have fallen naturally and others blown up by the wind. 

The beneficiaries live in fear but those who can afford have opted for Manyattas, their original housing model. 

The houses are found in Nachuka and Loputiput villages in Nadunget sub county and Nakapelimen in South Division, Moroto Municipality. They were constructed by the UPDF engineering department.
