Mbarara Sheikh dies in an accident


Mbarara district Khadi Sheikh Muhammad Kwikiriza has died.

The Khadi died in an accident along Mbarara high way near the independence park in Nyamitanga.

Sheikh Kwikiriza was driving his official car heading to the mosque to lead the Eid-al-adhuha prayers.

However, he lost control of the vehicle as he tried to overtake another vehicle. The vehicle then hit a tree and he died immediately.

Sheikh Ahmed assumed the office of Mbarara district Khadi last year.

The Mbarara district police commander Jaffar Magyezi said the deceased’s body has been taken to Mbarara regional referral hospital mortuary.
