At about 30 people have been confirmed dead after a cruise boat carrying party revellers capsized on Lake Victoria.

 The vessel was carrying close to 100 people when it sank on Saturday near Uganda’s capital, Kampala. 

Ugandan media named a number of well-known people said to be on the boat, adding that the prince of a traditional kingdom had survived.

 Lake Victoria sees regular accidents, often involving overcrowded vessels. Saturday’s accident occurred off Uganda’s Mukono district.

 Deputy police spokesman Patrick Onyango told Reuters news agency: “The boat was overloaded and secondly there was bad weather.”

 More than 20 people have been rescued from the water, police say, but an unknown number remain missing.
