Around 40 people died on Friday due to landslide following heavy rains in eastern Uganda Mount Elgon area.
The death toll could rise as a government rescue team, the BBC quoted.
According to the Uganda Red Cross,36 bodies have been recovered, but the Daily Monitor newspaper has said 40 bodies have been found so far.
A river burst its banks and a torrent of mud and water swept villages away.
A landslide in the same region, Bududa, killed more than 300 people in 2010.
After previous disasters, people have been told to move away but many return because of the fertility of the land and their attachment to their ancestral home.
