The four were walking in the rain on the way to their residence at Mutangula village Nakaseke district.

The heavy thunder storm left some of the houses and banana plantations down as people ran for shelter in school class rooms.

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.

He adds that of late there has been a lot of insecurity in the region, but it has at least gone down with most of the guns used to carry out the raids have been recovered and arrests of suspects have been made.
