I’m still alive but so traumatized, says Iryn Namubiru

Singer Iryn Namubiru who’s one of the people who survived death when a boat they were sailing on capsized in Lake Victoria on Saturday says she’s traumatized and getting medical attention.

“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 traumatised. My deepest thoughts to our comrades who didn’t make it and condolences to the bereaved families. What can I say? GOD,” the 36-year-old Omukwano Gwafe singer tweeted Sunday morning.

Events promoter Balam Barugahare said in an interview with NTV that the boat was overloaded and could have had a leakage under it.

“Iryn Namubiru successfully swam to safety after the accident,” he said.


By Sunday morning, at least 23 bodies had been retrieved and taken to Kampala City mortuary.

Other prominent people who survived the accident include Prince David Wasajja, a brother to Buganda King Kabaka Ronald Mutebi, city businessman John Fredrick Kiyimba commonly known as Freeman, Ugandan rapper and a member of the rap group Klear Kut Tom Mayanja popularly known as The Mith. However, the Mith said he was on a different boat.
