A man identified as Derrick Owekyo, a resident of Mpatta Island in Mukono District, died in attempt to rescue people who were drowned in the water. According to an eye witness derrick helped singer Iryn Namubiru swim to her safety but as he was going back to rescue others, he didn’t make it as he failed to swim because he was tired. As of right now the “Nsimye” singer is alive and kicking though undergoing treatment.
“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 posted on her twitter page.
This came after many people thought the “nkuweki” singer was one of the people who had died in the tragedy, indeed God is grateful to the artist after her going through many things in life and this tragedy would have been an end of her but the almighty was there for her.
