Two dead bodies have been recovered by Police along Nakivubo Channel at Clock Tower near Total fuel station after today’s heavy downpour.
The two bodies were carried by flood water from different places.
Patrick Onyango the Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson says the first body to be retrieved is of female juvenile aged 12 years, identified as Namazzi Alyera, a resident of Nsambya Kitooro, Makindye Division, in Kampala Capital City.
It is alleged that Namazzi was playing with her friends during the rain and their ball fell in the trench, but was swept away when she tried to remove the ball.
Her body was swept up to Clock Tower, where a boda boda rider saw it and informed the police. Police went and retrieved the body.
While still carrying on their work, another body appeared and it was also removed.
The body was not identified but it is of a male adult. “We appeal to members of the public to be very cautious during this rainy season.”
