Uganda’s Opposition leader, Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, yesterday visited Kasaka secondary school and families of the four students who were recently knocked dead by a Sino truck while inside a classroom.

Bobi Wine who also comes from Gomba district where the incident happened said the crash occurred at the time when he had travelled outside the country and couldn’t mourn with the school and families at that moment.

However, Bobi Wine said being a born of Gomba district and having grown up near the affected school, it was compelling for him to pay courtesy and join hands in restoring the destroyed structure and comforting the bereaved families.

The March 15 crash claimed lives of Hilda Asege, Evelyn Namagembe and Bosco Mawanda. The killer track was identified by traffic police’s spokesperson as UBL 790J and its driver was identified as Abudala Wanume aged 26.

Details collected by police show that Wanume lost control because of speeding and ended up ramming into a computer laboratory killing four students on spot. At least 18 other students were injured according to police and the school administration.

Bobi Wine’s visit to the school and families caused a lot of excitement as hundreds of residents including Bodaboda riders trailed his movement. He promised to work with the school administration and other well wishers to rebuild the school.

President Yoweri Museveni sent five million shillings to each of the families whose children were killed in the crash. Police have since arraigned the driver Wanume to court over his reckless driving that claimed the lives of the young souls.
