The Member of Parliament for Ik County in Kaabong District, Hon Hilary Lokwang, is in grief after his one-year-old twin daughter drowned in a basin of water on Tuesday.
The girl drowned when the mother had gone away to pick a cake for celebrating her birthday.
In an interview on Wednesday, Mr Lokwang confirmed the incident.
“The kids were playing, unfortunately one fell into the basin which was full of water and failed to get up,” he explained.
Last year in May, the twins of State Minister for Water Ronald Kibuule drowned in the swimming pool.
The two-year-old twins identified as Roman Kato and Raiding Wasswa reportedly drowned after escaping the attention of their minders.
The officer said the two caretakers switched off and the twins went into the pool, which is located in the family compound and drowned. Minister Kibuule was at the time of the incident reported to be in Kampala while wife Fortunate had been at a construction site in Namataba, a few kilometres from home.
