Date:

At least 10 people are feared dead after a boat capsized in one of the African Great Lakes, Lake Victoria.

The 10 are said to be Ugandan traders who were last night on their way to Honge beach in Lake Victoria.

The Standard reports that one of the eyewitnesses, David Omondi, said the boat was ferrying foodstuff and it had about 20 occupants.

“The incident happened at around 11 pm and ten people have survived,” said Omondi.

The search for the ten bodies was underway on Wednesday morning as the survivors camp at the beach.
