A heavy early morning downpour today, 16th November, 2022 in Kampala has so far claimed three lives according to police.


Speaking to the media, Luke Owesigyire, the Kampala Metropolitan Police Deputy Spokesperson said the deaths that all occurred in Mutungo involved two different incidents.


The first incident was registered in Mutungo Zone 2, Nakawa Division in Kampala City after a makeshift structure housing Kannan Bujjo, 25 and Emma Kayanja, 20 collapsed killing them instantly.


The second incident was in Mutungo Zone 1 where a temporary house collapsed killing a 4 months old baby.


“According to neighbours, the child is called Praise Mugezi. Unfortunately by the time our officers arrived at the scene, the child’s parents had already picked the body. Their particulars are yet to be established,” Owesigyire said.


The two retrieved bodies have been conveyed to Mulago mortuary for a postmortem.


He warned residents against living in makeshift or incomplete structures saying such deaths may continue occurring.
