A first year student doing Information Technology at Makerere University main campus has died after drowning at the swimming pool this morning.
Milimu Jonh Paul is said to have gone for a morning jog with friends before accessing the pool where he encountered the unexpected. He died upon diving at the deep end of pool.
Masinga Mark, the Chairperson Nsibirwa Hall, where the victim resided was at the pool and confirmed to City Television Uganda the sad development. “It is true the boy drowned,” he said adding “We were a group and the accident occurred around 7:30 am.”
Masinga said there was no university diver to rescue the situation since the pool’s official entrance was still locked.
Details about the deceased district of origin remain scanty.
