120 people have lost their lives in road accidents in the last 16 days



In 16 days, At least 120 people have lost their lives in road accidents. Police reports reveals that between December 23 and January 7, more than 120 people have died and scores have sustained serious injuries due to road accidents across the country.

Addressing the media last week, the traffic police spokesperson, Ms Faridah Nampima revealed that 55 died in road accidents between December 23 and December 26, 2022, while 212 sustained serious injuries. Between December 30, 2022, and January 1, 35 deaths were registered from 104 road crashes.

Police have attributed the increasing number of road crashes to reckless driving with motorcyclists accounting for the highest number of persons killed, contributing to 28.57 per cent, pedestrians at 25.27 per cent, passengers on other vehicles at 14.26 per cent while passengers on heavy omnibuses and motorcycles 11.43 per cent each. Drivers killed in road crashes account for 5.71 per cent and only 2.86 per cent of pedal cyclists are victims of the same accidents.

 “Besides reckless driving and other causes of the road crashes, the ministry is underfunded and when you look at the budget framework, the element of road safety is not catered for which also explains why we continue to lose people in such a big number.”Mr Yusuf Nsibambi.

The major accidents that rocked the last days of 2022 and the 2023 debut week are; the Masaka-Mbarara road crash which claimed 10 lives on December, 28; Buloba multi-car crash along the Kampala-Mityana road killing 3 family members, on December 30, and the Kabale-Ntungamo road crash which left at least 6 people dead on the same day
