“People in the area who were at the scene said the GAAGAA bus was on the high speed,” noted Gashagaza.


Niragire, one of eye witnesses told our chimp corp: “I saw three coasters on their way to Kigali. The first two exceeded a lorry that was in front of them, when the third one wanted to overtake it too when it was hit by the bus that was on a very high speed.”


CSP Gashagaza has cautioned drivers to always pay attention before exceeding other road users, and not to drive whenever they are feeling tired or weak.


“The police would like first express its condolence to the families of the victims. The drivers are requested to pay attention before exceeding other road users, and they are demanded not to drive whenever they are stressed,” he urged.
