Uganda: 6 bodies recovered from river

At least six bodies of humans who drowned in Sezibwa River, Central Uganda when their boat capsized had been retrieved on Sunday.

Among the deceased is a mother and her year-old baby, police spokesperson Hellen Butoto said.

Three humans who managed to swim held onto shrubs till they have been rescued, she added.

“Using volatile canoes [boats] in dismiss of safety measures be blamed for the accident,” stated a nearby administrator.

Uganda has no authority or marine visitors police specifically charged with regulating water transport. The current Marine Police solely check smuggling, and no longer safety on water bodies.
