The Leader of Opposition in Parliament Winnie Kiiza has survived death by an inch after getting involved in a motor accident along Kampala-Masaka Highway on Saturday evening.
The Kasese Woman MP was travelling in a land cruiser registration number UG 0251H while heading to Masaka. Her car was knocked by a truck registration number UAY 069W that was ferrying sand from Lwera wetland.
The Katonga regional traffic police commander, Ms Ruth Kyobutungyi who confirmed the accident said Mr Francis Barigye, the truck driver is the only person who was injured in the accident and some parts of the legislator’s car like side mirrors and the door on the right hand side were crushed.
“We have arrested him (truck driver) because he caused a minor accident and was driving carelessly. He’s going to receive medical attention from the police clinic,” said Kyobutungyi as quoted by Daily Monitor.
