Lamech Kigozi the regional police spokesperson Savanah region says on a number of occasions they have warned people not to walk in the rain because it’s not the risk of lightening a lone but also may step on electricity wires which may have fallen during the rain.

Kigozi added that the death of Ntasiima came as an accident but still people should be cautious.

Some of them walk in the rain while talking on phones and this according to scientists can lead to one being struck by lightning.

Meanwhile, Kigozi spoke of the 24 suspected robbers who included a police officer a one Barnet Musiime attached to special investigations unit in Kireka, who were netted in Nakaseke on the same day after a robbery was carried out in Ngooma during the rain; where several heads of cattle, motorcycles and cash were taken.
