Irene Namubiru and her Hero (Brian)
‘Masole Brian a student at KIU who saved my life and many others’. He went back to the lake 3 times until there were no other people alive.
Brian and other fellow students had hired their boat to go have fun on the near by Islands. When they heard and saw our boat capsizing, he quickly took his friends ashore and cane to rescue us.
He heard my distress calls for help as i saw other boats passing us by, saw the light of my phone that I kept waving up
and came right to me.
He asked me for the phone, bag and then pulled me in. Then he tried to pull the lady who came grabbing on my hand and life jacket almost drowning me. I managed to bring her up to the boat but she died right there as part of her life jacket got stuck under the boat and she was to heavy.
That was Mrs. BISASE owner of the boat. I left my phone with BRIAN which he used to save others and went straight to resuscitate a one SHYLLA NANKUNDA who must have died on the boat.
I Thank you Brian, The fishermen , the locals and all those who with whom we were trying to save others. It’s unfortunate that One fisherman died so others could live. May he R.I.P.
On that very night Brian communicated with my people found who I was, assured them that I was alive and safe. At 03h30 he was at my house with my manager just to make sure. .
Yesterday, Monday 26th 2018, Brian came home, brought back my shoes and phone! .
