31 Dead After Party Boat Capsized In Uganda – PHOTOS

A boat carrying party-goers, capsized on Saturday in Lake Victoria Uganda, claiming at least 31 lives.

The vessel was carrying almost 100 people and one of the survivors is Prince Daudi Kintu Wasajja, who is the brother of the king of Uganda’s largest kingdom, Buganda. Other popular socialites have also been reported as being aboard the ill-fated vessel.

A spokesman for the police department attributed the accident to the boat being overcrowded and the weather conditions being unfavorable. Persons onboard also didn’t have life jackets.

In an even worse turn of events, it was reported that two fishing boats that attempted to rescue the party goers, sank as a result of being overloaded.

After the accident, loved ones gathered on the shoreline awaiting the fate of persons on board. Screams and cries could be heard every time a body was recovered. Personal items were also laid out on the shore.

Lake Victoria is Africa’s largest lake and the second-largest in the world. View the graphic photos below, viewers discretion is advised.

 

 

May their souls rest in the Lord’s bossom.
