According to Savannah Regional Police Spokesperson, Mr Sam Twiineamazima, “Preliminary findings indicate that at around 9 am Pastor Francis Kakande, the father of one Muwanguzi (deceased) was preparing to go to church and left his son home as he was preparing to go to school for a tour.”

“Shortly Felix Lukyamuzi (deceased) came in and convinced his friend to go together to a natural forest where the said dam is located to collect firewood and swim as well. It’s alleged that it has been a habit of Lukyamuzi to swim unlike Muwanguzi who didn’t know how to swim,” he added.

It is reported that the residents waited for the two children to return but in vain until the evening when village members got concerned and started tracing them.

“The locals got clothes in the forest alongside the said dam. One of the village members who knew how to swim entered water and retrieved the bodies at about 10: 00 pm. Upon police receiving the information they responded immediately, ”ASP Twineamazima said.

Police said the scene was visited and documented by Scene of Crime Officers (SOCO). The bodies were taken to Kasana Luwero Hospital for postmortem examination.
