The body of Joan Twizere Uwimana, who has been the communication and fundraising manager of Rubaga Hospital, was on Wednesday recovered, three days after she drowned at Itanda falls along the River Nile in Jinja district.


It was found downstream at Buwala village, about 1.5 kilomteres from Itanda falls by local divers and fishermen who operate in the area, according to the Kiira North District Police Commander, Samuel Madira.

Madira explained that the body had been trapped in rocks at the riverbed but was retrieved at about 2.00pm. He said police had planned to take it to Jinja regional referral hospital but dropped the idea as the family members insisted on taking it directly to Mulago hospital, where the deceased’s father Mathias Habarule works.

Twizere drowned on Sunday during a tour at Itanda falls located in Butagaya subcounty, 27 kilometres north of Jinja town.
