Fleeing Lake Victoria wrath

As people on several islands on Lake Victoria are struggling with the over-flow of the lake water, many have started moving to the mainland. Coupled with heavy storms on the lake, the sitting arrangement on the boats is worrying as it is difficult to maintain the social distance as advised by health experts to fight COVID-19 yet they have to be carried off the boats to the lake shores. Herbert Musoke captured arrivals at Kasenyi landing site.
