At least 20 out of an estimated 60 people aboard, were Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s visitors from Kigali.

The ladies according to insiders were invited by the first son to grace his 48th birth day party scheduled on April 24. 

Lt Gen Muhoozi who is also the commander of land forces, sent out a tweet two days ago, confirming that Ms Jolly Mutetsi, the former Miss Rwanda, whom he described as “an old friend” would grace his glamorous birth day party.

Rwanda’s national carrier said in a statement that all passengers and flight crew deplaned safely with no reported injuries.

Uganda Civil Aviation Authority said that all efforts are underway to remove the aircraft from the runway strip so that the main runway can return to full use.
