River Nile Claims Lives Of Two Fishermen Obongi District

At least two fishermen have been reported dead after they drowned in the waters of River Nile, the world’s longest river. This happened after a canoe they sailed in capsized at Nidirindiri landing site, Palorinya sub-county in Obongi district.

The deceased were identified as Amanga Majid, a resident of Aliba sub-county and Yasin Mundasiri, a resident of Kochi sub-county.

They met their death as they fished during night hours. The bodies of the deceased have since been recovered and given to their respective families for burial.

In a period of five days, at least four people have been reported dead from separate accidents in River Nile.

Obongi Resident District Commissioner Samuel Mpimbaza confirmed the incident involving Majid and Yasin. He asked fishermen and residents traveling on water to be extra careful while traveling.

He asked them to use life jackets and avoid traveling on water during rainy days because this could cause the boat to capsize.
