Shock engulfed residents at Busindi landing site in Mazinga sub-county in Kalangala district, after their fellow resident was found dead in a case of suspected excessive consumption of alcohol. 

Joseph Kateregga, 42, allegedly drunk alcohol from a bar belonging to Betty Nakigudde's where he was left locked inside since he couldn’t haul himself back home unaided due to inebriation. 

Ronald Kakembo, a member of the Mazinga sub-county village health team, said that at 10:00 am, Nakigudde opened her bar to clean up and she tried to awaken Kateregga only to discover him lying in mucus and blood. 

"It seems the deceased was locked inside as they usually do, thinking that he will wake up as the hangover disappears from him," Kakembo added. 

According to a post mortem report, the deceased took excessive amounts alcohol minus eating food which resulted in hypoglycemia.

The deceased's body is still at Busindi landing site awaiting to be transported to Masaka for burial.
