On Monday, March 30, 2020, in the Basumba cell, Bigogwe sector in Nyabihu district, two bodies of men believed to have been struck dead by lightning on Saturday were retrieved.

Basumba cell executive secretary Gashegu Justin said the bodies were found on Monday but suspect them to have been struck dead on Saturday as one of the victims was talking on the phone.

“These men used to come to carry out lumbering here from Kabatwa. On Saturday they did not return home, but yesterday their wives came to look for them and we found their bodies near the bridge”

Bodies of the deceased were found late as residents were observing the ‘stay at home’ guidance to control the spread of coronavirus, a Gashegu said.
