The body of a student
of Tororo Technical Institute who drowned in river Malaba in October this year
has been recovered.
The body was recovered on
Sunday at Kataboi-Akolodong in Malaba,l over the 4 km stretch of Malaba
River from Mella.
The deceased has been identified as Stephen Enapat Junior, a second year
student of construction and resident of Kipiriyo North Zone in Mollo Sub County
Enapat reportedly drowned as he attempted to
swim in the fast flowing river Malaba.
Daniel Mwesigwa, the Principle Tororo Technical Institute,
says the recovery of the body comes as a relief to the entire staff, students
and management of the institute including the community and friends.
The deceased’s mother, Ruth Among Olowo, says she and the
entire family are equally relieved by the development because she can now
believe that her son is dead.
search for the deceased’s missing body had raised suspicion among his relatives
who still doubted whether their son had really drowned or it was a camouflage
by the school to blind fold the family.
Some had developed
false suspicion that the deceased could have been kidnapped but the
administration was not being open to them.
