MASINDI: The Albertine Region Police Spokesperson Julius Allan Hakiza has identified the deceased as Katelia Khushid Banu 37, a British national.

The incident happened on Monday at around 12am.

Hakiza told this publication that the deceased checked into the hotel together with her nine relatives around 8pm on Sunday after travelling from Kampala as tourists from the United Kingdom.

After being cleared by the hotel management, the deceased reportedly entered room number 11 where she would spend the night.

However, at around 11:30 pm her relatives who were still outside heard her screaming for help from the bathroom. They responded quickly and found her on the floor.

She told them that she had taken a shower and slid on the floor shortly after dressing up.

The regional police mouthpiece explained that Katelia’s relatives supported her and she sat outside with them before asking them to take her back to her room, where she collapsed and died.

Hakiza says the deceased and her relatives travelled to Uganda on January 16, 2023, and spent some time in Kampala until January 29, 2023, when they traveled to Masindi.

According to Hakiza, the deceased’s body has been conveyed to the city mortuary pending a postmortem.
