Nine killed in Buikwe accident

By Davis Mugabi

Nine people have been confirmed dead following a Wednesday morning accident at Bulyantente near the flyover along Kampala-Jinja highway in Buikwe district.

The accident involved a single truck Reg. No. UBN 533T, a Mitsubishi Fuso truck, white in color. The driver is still unknown. 

Preliminary reports indicate that the truck, carrying sacks of oranges and passengers covered with a tarpaulin, lost control on its way from Jinja to Kampala. It flipped over, and the passengers got covered with the sacks of oranges.
Nine people lost their lives, Regional Police Spokesperson Hellen Butoto said in a statement Wednesday.

“Our officers are working hard to remove the orange-sacks carefully to see if there are any survivors,” added Butoto.

By press time, bodies had been conveyed to Kawolo Hospital Mortuary for postmortem.
