Police in Buliisa is stuck with a decomposing body of a man in his 30s whose body was found floating on the lake Albert waters.

The decomposing body was recovered by women who had gone to fetch water at Masaka landing site in Buliisa on Friday morning.

Augustine Bagonza, the Masaka landing site LC1 Chairperson says the decomposing body was sighted by women who had gone to fetch water on Friday morning at around 9a.m.

They later notified his office prompting him to alert Buliisa police who immediately swung into action and retrieved the body with the help of fishermen.

Bagonza says the deceased could have drowned in the lake from another landing site since he is not a resident of his area.

Julius Hakiza, the Albertine region police spokesperson told Uganda Radio Network on Saturday morning that police picked the body and later conveyed it to Buliisa general hospital mortuary where it is currently lying adding that both the police and the hospital management is stuck with the body.

According to Hakiza, no one has yet come to claim the body.

In December 2018, Police in Buliisa was forced to bury the remains of a man whose body was recovered near Wanseko landing site. The body was recovered by fishermen who handed it over to police.
