Gaaga bus accident

With the increasing accidents along highways, police will not leave any stone unturned to have them reduced.

The force has now restored check points at different spots.

Speaking to media today, the chief traffic police commissioner Steven Kasiima said this takes immediate effect in areas of Nsangi, Matugga, Kafu, Luweero and Iganga among others.

Meanwhile, some of the victims of the Nakasongola bus accident are recovering steadily.

Mulago hospital spokesperson Enock Kusasira says so far 6 of the victims have been discharged, 8 are slowly responding to treatment, two of them in critical condition.
