case geneva;”>However, the OC Traffic Bunyaruguru, Sgt Andrew Gubi, said among the dead were an adult male and male juvenile.


According to Sgt Gubi, the nasty accident involved a Link Bus registration No.UAQ-080E that was travelling from Bwera to Kampala.


The accident happened at Kalere along the Bwera –Kasese road at around 2:20pm today, Wednesday.


He said two passengers died on spot and two were severely injured; they were rushed to Kagando hospital in a critical condition.


The officer said the driver of the bus tried to avoid the herdsman that was crossing the road with his cattle.


In the processes of avoiding the reckless herdsman, the bus driver lost control and it veered off the road overturning several times.


Gubi attributed the cause of the accident to overspeeding by the bus driver and the reckless herdsman.


The bus was impounded and parked at Kasese Main Police Station.

“Police is a national force which should do their work according to what they are mandated to do in order to win public trust,” Mbabazi said
responding to the Leader of opposition in Parliament, Wafula Oguttu.


The Prime Minister, however, denied answering the first question from the Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, who asked him if the government is concerned about the Inspector General of Police, Gen. Kale Kayihura’s activities of courting youths to support President Yoweri Museveni against Mbabazi.


Mbabazi told the House that he answered the second question on principles since it doesn’t touch his name.


“In principle, the police should build its own image based on their stipulated responsibilities for the public to respect them. But on me, the government is not aware that the police is decampaigning Mbabazi in favour of Museveni,” Mbabazi added.


Recently, the social media has been awashed by the audio recordings pinning Kayihura for planting youths to spy on Mbabazi who is believed to be harbour ambitions to stand against the NRM party chairman and President Museveni.


The notorious spy tapes


Audio recordings of a police investigation into alleged acts of criminality in the NRM leaked to the public, with IGP Gen Kale Kayihura, warning youth against selfish leaders, especially Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi.


According to the recordings, Kayihura compared Mbabazi to the biblical false prophets that Jesus Christ warned his followers about.


The IGP further note Mbabazi has been using his office for self-enrichment instead of using resources available to transform lives of NRM followers say through poverty eradication projects.


“Instead of erecting a bank for NRM, Mbabazi set up his private National Bank of Commerce (NBC),” the IGP is heard saying.


During this Gomba conversation, the youth confirmed Kayihura’s fears that Mbabazi was mobilising grassroot structures to challenge Museveni in 2016.


Meanwhile, Kayihura recently said the interrogation and arrest of NRM youth leaders perceived to be supporters of Mbabazi was part of a wider investigation into reports that “individuals associated with the NRM party are going around the country securing or attempting to secure signatures, using methods that amount to criminality such as using bribery or on the basis of falsehoods.”


He said police received reports of a group of people moving around collecting signatures from people in Kampala, falsely claiming that the intention was to take them to the President so that the longstanding promises the President are, at last, fulfilled.


The controversial spy tapes that later leaked to Jacqueline Mbabazi led to the arrest and detention of a police detective, one Ronald Boteri.


Word spread that Mrs Mbabazi too would be arrested and interrogated about the tapes but police moved swiftly to deny the allegations.


Others also claimed that the Premier himself would be detained over the same, something police again dismissed as untrue.


It should, however, be remembered that Mbabazi has consistently denied mobilising support against Museveni.


He, however, admits his wife indeed carried out some mobilisation work.


Mbabazi emphasised his relationship with Museveni remains solid due to their friendship that started over 30 years ago.
