The State Minister for Water Resources Ronald Kibuule is inconsolable after his twins drowned in a swimming pool at his home in Mukono.
It is not yet clear how the young boys drowned but the young boys, according to recent photos circulating on social media are believed to be about 2 years of age.
Ugandans on social media have expressed shock at the news of the drowning, with most sending condolence messages to the minister.
ICT Minister Frank Tumwebaze was among those to condole with his colleague.
"I have just learnt with Deep pain and shock about the tragedy of Comrade and brother
@HonKibuule 's children. May the almighty God be with him and his family in this most painful moment," Tumwebaze tweeted.
Kibuule could not hide his happiness after welcoming his double bundle of joy in 2017 after the birth of the babies that have surely gone too soon.
He then said that God had given him all he had asked for, alluding to the fact that he had got twins, on top of his soaring political career.
