KAMPALA– Singer Iryn Namubiru, who survived a boat cruise accident on Lake Victoria where on weekend where over 30 people died, says probably God is trying to make her understand something.
Nambiru says she was rescued by a joint police and army operation that started just above 6:30 pm on Saturday evening.
In a social media post, the singer said “I would like to thank all of you who have reached out to me. By GOD’S GRACE I am still Alive, safe and getting medical attention but so traumatized.
“My deepest thoughts to our comrades who didn’t make it and condolences to the bereaved families. What can I say? GOD,” Namubiru recounted on Twitter adding that “The DEVIL and his ACCOMPLICES are not winning. GOD IS JUST NOT DONE WITH ME YET, but he is for sure trying to make me understand something.”
By Monday afternoon, 33 bodies had been recovered and taken to Kampala City Mortuary for post-mortem as search and rescue operation resumes Sunday morning.
Defence and Army spokesperson Brig Richard Karemire said the police and UPDF marine units are doing all they can to retrieve all the bodies from the water. The two security forces have since deployed helicopters to locate any floating bodies.
