He reportedly went to the Aruu Falls located in Gulu district of the Ugandan capital, Kampala for work related activities when the unfortunate drowning happened.

The NGO is into activism against poverty and handles the Ugandan government’s contracts relating to poverty eradication.

According to yabaleftonline.ng, he earlier took some pictures at the scene with friends and then sat down with his feet inside the water.

Kizza then allegedly slipped into the water and all efforts by his friends to rescue him were too late.

His dead body was later retrieved by police who were called to the scene and was deposited at the Lacor Hospital in Gulu.

It was after his death that one of his friends revealed that preparations were underway towards his marriage which is due to take place in August.
