Uganda Police marine unit teams have so far rescued over 40 people alive after a ferry carrying revellers capsizing on. Eleven have been confirmed dead.
Many more are still missing and other survivors are still stranded at Mutola Beach.
It all happened as revellers had organised a boat cruise party and they booked a number of artistes to perform, they invited big wigs of Kampala and a some celebrities had attended.
According to eye witnesses the ferry left Luzira at around 6pm and headed for Mutola Beach in Mukono. Some of the people who had paid came late and found when the ferry had just left. They hired a small speed boat and decided to catch up with the team.
It’s thought that this ferry was knocked by unidentified object and the boat flipped upside down in the middle of the lake. Most of the people on the ferrh had no life jackets but authorities are yet to establish what exactly happened.
