Motorists warned against interrupting presidential convoy as three are injured
Three injured on Presidential convoy accident on Northern bypass
Three people have been injured following an accident involving one of the motor vehicles in the presidential convoy and a boda boda.
The incident happened on Monday morning at around 1140am along the Northern bypass around Masanafu, when a boda boda cyclist carrying two passengers rammed into one of the motor vehicles on the Presidential convoy.
According to SSP Patrick Onyango the spokesperson KMP, the lead car had cleared the road for other motor vehicles on the convoy to follow. However, the rider of motorcycle registration number UPM 260F joined and rammed into one of the vehicles.
“The motorcyclist was carrying two passengers which is even illegal,” says Onyango.
All three people on the motorcycle were injured and rushed to the hospital but nobody died.
The injured persons have been identified as Maka Charles who was taken for a scan at New Mulago, Nabanja Joan who was picked up by her relatives and taken to Mengo hospital and Elama Eric who disappeared on arrival at Mulago hospital.
‘We want to inform motorists that the Presidential convoy has right of way as per section 123 (4) of the Traffic and Road Safety Act 1998 as amended. When the convoy is passing you are supposed to park your motor vehicle or motorcycle until when the last vehicle in convoy passes you that is when you are supposed to join the road,” Onyango warned.
