According to eyewitnesses, the canoe was carrying more than 30 passengers and cargo when it capsized. At least five bodies had been recovered by the time of publishing this story.
The Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire, said they were waiting for updates from the rescue team before issuing a statement on the accident. The death toll from accidents on Ugandan water bodies is often because most of the users ignore safety measures.
