What began as a normal day unexpectedly turned tragic for State Water Minister Ronald Kibuule’s family when his twin boys, aged 2, last evening drowned in a swimming pool at home.
They were post-humously identified as Roman Kato and Raiding Wasswa.
“Yes, they drowned in the swimming pool, but we do not know what exactly happened because at the time of the incident the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras were off,” said Mr Davis Lukyamuzi, an uncle of the minister.
Both Mr Kibuule and his wife, Fortunate, were away. The guards at the palatial home said the kids were playing on the expansive compound and in the care of two male minders when they drowned.
One of the guards, speaking on condition of anonymity in order not to jeopardise ongoing investigations, said they were unaware about the presumed freak fatal accident until one of the minders yelled that “we are dead; the kids have drowned”.
