Celebrated singer Iren Namubiru has this afternoon met the gentleman who saved her life during the weekend.
Namubiru is among the 29 lucky people that were rescued from the ill-fated boat that capsized on Lake Victoria on Saturday 24 November 2019.
“Masole Brian a student at Kampala International University (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 stud3nts had hired their boat to go have fun on the nearby Islands. When they heard and saw our boat capsizing, he quickly took his friends ashore and cane to rescue us.” Namubiru narrates.
The Birowoozo singer adds that he heard her distress calls for help as she saw other boats passing by, saw the light of my phone that she kept waving up and came right to herself.
“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.” She adds.
“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!”
