[Sad News] Uganda boat cruise on Lake Victoria capsizes, many drown (photos)

A Uganda boat cruise on Lake Victoria ended up tragically, as the boat capsized and left many trapped under the water in the completely submerged boat.

Though Police spokesman Emilian Kayima said late Saturday that police marine units had pulled 40 survivors from the water, he however disclosed that 10 people have already been confirmed dead. Some of the boat cruise passengers were singers Iryn Namubiru and The Mith of the group Klear Kut.

Mr Kayima who said search and rescue efforts will continue overnight for other victims of the Uganda boat cruise, however gave no details on the cause of the accident, which happened in Mpatta Sub-County in the Mukono District.

“Uganda police force marine unit rescues over 40 people alive on lake Victoria. Ten died. Rescue mission still on.”
