Kizza, an employee of an NGO based in Kamwokya, Kampala, had travelled to Gulu on a work-related trip. While there, he and other colleagues decided to go have fun at the falls.

Moments before he drowned, he first took pictures, then he sat down and put his feet in water as his friends took pictures. Unknown to them, this was their last moment with him.

Slowly, he slipped down into the water and by the time they realized he was actually slipping from life, it was too late to rescue him. They sounded an alarm, but there was no one within reach to help. Police came in later and managed to retrieve the body.

Sadly this is coming just few months to his wedding.
