Ten people dead after boat capsizes in Lake Victoria, Mpatta, Uganda

At least 10 people have died after a cruise boat capsized in Lake Victoria on Saturday evening while more than 40 others were rescued, Ugandan police said.

“The rescue mission is still on to find others,” said police spokesman Emilian Kayima.

The cruise boat went down off Mukono district, which is close to the capital Kampala, the Daily Monitor newspaper reported on its website.

Popular musician Joseph Mayanja commonly known as Jose Chameleone described the incident in a tweet as painful.

“My heart is bleeding after a lot of my people and friends have passed on after the boat party that capsized on Lake Victoria. May the lord have mercy on all families and friends of the deceased. We are a strong Nation! We shall overcome.”
