"Earthquake around the Lake Victoria region, especially in Bukoba town, rural, parts of Muleba and Karagwe. It was a 5.7 Richter scale. Much of the destruction happened in Bukoba town. 16 people were killed, 255 other were injured. Many houses were demolished, partly and some completely. We felt it even in Muleba, but only some cracks on the walls. No house has fallen in Muleba. Part of Mwanza town was as well affected.
It is so shocking that we always assume that something like this can nor happen here."
