This rumour is probably true and is of high priority – here's why:
The food poisoning is suspected in karamajong land where upto 5 people have been reported to have died and over 220 hospitalized in Amudat and Napak districts. Our trusted sources confirmed People in those two districts developed health complications after feeding on the super cereal especially mothers and children of which Most of the patients from Napak and Amudat developed mental illnesses, body pains, diarrhoea after feeding on super cereal, Lotome health center III alone with 14 staff has received 140 cases of the same. So far 138 have been discharged, 1 referred to Matany hospital and 1 life couldn’t be saved. Samples of the super cereal and water were taken from the affected areas and are currently being analysed at the Directorate of Government Analytical Laboratory and the Central Public Health Laboratory in Wandegeya.

The Ugandan Government and WFP confirmed they are carrying out more investigation o n the suspected food poisoning https://nilepost.co.ug/2019/03/19/government-investigating-suspected-wfp-food-poisoning-in-karamong
