Three fishermen die in Lake Victoria

THREE fishermen have died in Lake Victoria and three others were rescued following a canoe accident at Nungwe village in Geita district.

Geita District Fire and Rescue Service Inspector, Wambura Fidel, confirmed occurrence of the accident on Wednesday, saying it occurred early on Monday this week.

He named the deceased as David Mzula (25), Kamuli Mgogoro (20) and Faustine Chibuga (28), all fishermen and residents of Nungwe village in Geita district.

“The survivors are Kulwa Thomas (30), Dickson Alphonce (47), and Dickson Majura (22). There were six people in a fishing vessel on Sunday at around 6pm who were going for fishing activities but unfortunately the water entered the canoe,” he said.

The fishermen tried to empty the canoe but they were not successful because they were overwhelmed by strong water waves, he explained.

Fidel said citizens who were near the scene tried to rescue them after they heard them shouting but were able to save only some of them.

He called upon owners of fishing and water transport vessels to conduct regular inspections, to maintain safety level and ensure that they have rescue equipment.

Geita District Commissioner, Mr Colnery Magembe, urged the fishermen not to ignore instructions given by security agencies; instead, they should pay attention to them so that they are safe when accidents occur.

“I would like to appeal to all of you, but when this happens, it should be a lesson to all of us, accidents are there, and must happen in our communities, so we as a society should be careful.

“The survivor of the accident, Dickson Alphonce (47) said it happened when they were going to take other canoes to prepare for fishing activities.
