If not for Ramadan prayers an entire generation would have been claimed by a tragic incident that has seen four members of the same family and another still missing after a neighbour’s wall fence collapsed on their house in Seguku, off Entebbe road in Uganda following a Sunday morning downpour.

“A neighbour’s hard core fence fell on to my uncle’s house killing all the five members… The only person who survived is Sheikh Adinan who had gone for Subuhi prayers. Right now, well wishers are still digging out the remaining boy who’s still missing. Five of them have died including kids and their mum,” one Ashburg Katto posted on his Facebook wall on Sunday.
