Officers at Buvuma Police Station are investigating a fire incident that occurred on 7/4/2024, at 21:00 hours, claiming the lives of two children. The incident took place at Mayinja Village, Lunyanja Parish, Busamuzi Sub-County, Buvuma District.

The deceased have been identified as Mugabi Ali, male, 04 years old, and Kagoya Lania, female, 02 years old, both children of Mutesi Sylvia and Mugabi Eyala, residents of Kasokoso in Iganga District.

According to SP Butoto Hellen, Pro Ssezibwa Region, it is alleged that on 7/04/2024, at around 21:00 hours, at Mayinja Village, Lunyanja Parish, Busamuzi Sub-County, in Buvuma District, Nandego Sarah, aged 43 years, a resident of the above-mentioned address, left her house to visit a latrine, accompanied by Mutesi Peace, female, 15 years old, Rauma Saida, female, 10 years old, and Kampi Sarah, female, 11 years old.

In the house, she left a paraffin candle burning while her two grandchildren, Mugabi and Kagoya, were sleeping.

Unfortunately, before Nandego returned from the call, the house caught fire, resulting in the death of the children.

Butoto says the postmortem was conducted at the scene by a medical officer from Buvuma Health Center IV, and the bodies were handed over to relatives for burial in Iganga District, while investigations into the matter are currently underway.
