The Kiryamboga LCI Chairperson, Geoffrey Byensi noted that the fishermen’s boat was last night affected by strong winds which compelled it to capsize, subsequently drowning the 3 fishermen.

The trio were sailing in stormy water, fortunately, one identified as Jakwonga Openjmungu survived after swimming across and was rescued by other fellow fishermen.

The Albertine regional police spokesperson, Julius Hakiza stated  that the police are yet to dispatch a team of marine divers to join local fishermen to search for the bodies.
