The search for bodies of the Friday morning boat accident on Lake Albert resumed today just a day after it was suspended due to bad weather.
The search was tentatively suspended on Tuesday following strong currents that made water navigation by marine officials impossible.
The marine personnel at Butiaba Unit are conducting the search that commenced on Monday three days after the accident in which 16 people drowned.
Pascal Ecumu, the officer in charge police marines on Lake Albert, says however that despite the resumption of the search, no other bodies have been recovered.
The Marine boss fears that the bodies could have been blown far the lake by the heavy winds that characterized the waters the whole of yesterday.
He says however they are in touch with their Congolese counterparts on the other side of the lake and fishermen to avail them information incase the bodies are found yet.
Ecumu says the search mission would continue until all the bodies are recovered.
In total, seven bodies are still missing including the dead body that was being transported when the accident occurred. On monday, police recovered ten bodies.
The commercial boat carrying 22 mourners and a body headed for burial in the D.R. Congo capsized on Lake Albert between Butiaba and Magipol ports.
Only six passengers survived the marine accident, which police maintains was due to overloading.
