Pictorial: The Last Voyage of MV Templar

Comments 526 Views Mukono, Uganda

 

On Saturday November 24, 2018, MV Templar set off from KK beach in Gabba with more than 100 revelers on board to K-Palm Beach in Mpatta Sub County in Mukono district. The boat capsized just about 200metres before reaching Mutima country heaven.
 

Thirty three people are confirmed to have died and 27 others rescued. The exact cause of the boat accident is still unknown. However, reports show that the boat was in sorry state and wasn't worthy to operate.
 

It took the combined team of Police Marine, UPDF and fishermen to retrieve the wreckage of the boat from Lake Victoria. URN traveled to Mutima country heaven and now shares some pictures from the operation to retrieve the boat wreckage.
