An eyewitness said that nearby when they saw the crocodile, but Ms Kabiira was not able to get away, according to the Daily Monitor.

"We are advising people to avoid areas where these man-eater crocodiles are," Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) spokesman, Bashir Hangi, said.

"Crocodiles stay in fish-breeding areas, but when the fish gets depleted, they come to the surface and attack and eat humans."
