At least 14 bodies have so far been retrieved from Lake Albert and several others still missing following a boat accident in Buliisa District.
Eight bodies, including those of two children were recovered by fishermen on Tuesday night while six were recovered yesterday afternoon near Wanseko landing site.
Survivors said the boat carrying about 57 people capsized near Songa-Lendu landing site in Buliisa district on Tuesday as they were sailing to Panyimur weekly market in Pakwach District.
The boat captain only identified as Jakisa said the ill-fated boat belongs to Alur cultural leader in Panyimur.
Another survivor, Victor Uwachigiu told this reporter that he swam to the lakeshore with one- and-a-half-year-old child on his back.
He attributed the accident to bad weather and an inexperienced coxswain who failed to effectively maneuver through the strong wind that hit the boat.
