89 perished in accidents over the past week, says report
By Afayo Shadrach Bethel,.
At least 89 people have perished on Ugandan roads across the country over the last one week, a new report says.
This ghastly statistic was revealed by the Traffic Police PRO Faridah Nampiima while addressing journalists at the weekly security press conference yesterday.
The report comes at a time when the country’s transport and works sector is currently trying to find a solution to the increasing road carnage on Ugandan roads.
In June alone, at least 366 people died and 1,146 sustained injuries from the 1,825 accidents that occurred that month according to a police report.
Nampiima reminded motorists that only competent drivers with valid driver’s licences should be allowed on the road and said police had intensified operations in this area.
