The family of IK County Member of Parliament Hillary Lokwang and residents of Kaabong District in Karamoja sub region are in grief after the MP’s twin daughter drowned in a basin full of water.
Lokwang told journalists that the unfortunate incident took place at 4pm on Tuesday.
He said that the mother left both the deceased and the twin sister at home to buy cake to celebrate her first birthday.
“The kids were playing, unfortunately one fell in to the basin which was full of water and failed to get up.” Lokwang said.
Lokwang says he received the news as he was at Parliament legislating.
This comes just days after the MP was nominated to contest as a candidate for the IK county in the 2021 elections unopposed.
Relatedly, last year the twins of state minister for water Ronald Kibuule drowned in a swimming pool after escaping the attention of their care takers.
