By Gad Masereka

On Sunday, three people were killed on the spot in an accident along Kilembe road in Base Camp Ward, Kasese municipality, as a result of a head-on collision between two boda boda riders.

Both riders’ reckless riding, according to eyewitnesses, was to blame for the incident. Sulaiman Mujungu and Patrice Mumbere, both boda boda riders in Kasese town, and Brian Masereka, a student at International Widow Secondary School in Mbarara district, were among those killed.

According to James Mwiruwabo, the Kasese Municipal HCIII in charge, Kilembe Mines Hospital first confirmed the victims’ deaths before referring their bodies to the facility for postmortem.

Isa Masereka, a boda boda rider and Mujungu’s close friend, says he got the motorcycle from a friend after his motorcycle delivered some goods.

Israel Masereka blames the accident on alcohol abuse after reports indicated that one of the riders was coming from a hang-out in Kilembe.

The bodies have been handed over to the families for burial.
