The wreckage of the boat that capsized last Saturday is being pulled to the sides and the teams add that in case they discover more bodies, they will not be able to show them to the public as they are decomposed. Wallets and handbags for the victims have been forwarded to Mukono Police for those who could identify the missing persons from the items.
Pics of the boat before the Saturday accident
Tomorrow (Nov 30) has been declared a National day of Mourning for all those that lost their lives in the Saturday boat cruise accident, flags will be flying at half-mast and several places of worship will be holding special prayers for the victims.
In the clip that Iryn Namubiru shared yesterday, revelers are seen at this particular spot trying to reach out for each other as the boat was visibly losing control.
These were some of the lifesaver jackets but from the few clips and pics seen, those who did not have them out numbered those that had. The owner of the boat, Michael Bisase aka Templar knew how to swim, but unfortunately he did not make it together with his wife, Sheila Bisase.
Meanwhile, the management of Mutima Beach where the rescue operations have been taking place in the last six days are dragging police to court for the losses they've incurred all these days.
