The investigation is reported to have been led by Lt Dick Birungi, the Defence and UPDF Inspector of Vehicles.

According the investigation report, it was revealed that the car had been serviced on April 24, 2013 at Shell Jinja Road Service Station at a mileage of 97,555Km and given its next service which was supposed to be at 102,555Km. This implies the car still had a total balance of 624Kms to run.

“This implies that its routine service was followed as per the check list and not faulted upon,” resolved the committee.

On further scrutiny, the committee found out that the top cover of the cylinder head had a hole and some cracks which had allowed water to escape hence the overheating.

The committee has since recommended replacement of major parts to get the vehicle back on the road.
