The Uganda Police Force Marine Unit has discovered the second body of two Teens who drowned in Lake Victoria, Jinja City, on Christmas Day.

However, Mr. Mubi said on Monday that “the body of one yet-to-be-identified male juvenile has been discovered, while the second person, also unidentified, is still missing. Jinja Marine Police have tried to search for the second body in  vain.”

Earlier, the body of 12-year-old Fazali Ebere Mukungu, a former Primary Five pupil of Happy Hours Primary School in Bugembe, Jinja North City Division, was brought ashore, triggering a sombre mood.

On Tuesday afternoon, a similar mood gripped residents at the landing site when the body of Akishan Wambadde, 10, a former pupil of Nakayonyi Primary School in Jinja City, was also brought ashore.

Brian Mungdit, an eyewitness, says one of the teens went swimming but “disappeared” in the water, adding that when his colleague went to search for him, he, too, didn’t return, triggering a frantic search for him.

“One first responder to the lake was overwhelmed by the waters, and after not making it far into the water body, he returned empty-handed,” Mungdit said.

“We haven’t yet identified them, but it is being suggested by locals that they are not from Masese. Police came when the body was retrieved from the lake by first responders and took it to the mortuary,” he added.

In conclusion, he, however, added that when the police arrived at the scene, one body had been discovered and brought ashore by the locals, while focus had shifted to finding the second body.
