“The transportation of Prisoners, we have really done it wrongly and I must apologize; prisoners for labour must be transported in vehicles which are licensed to do that,” Byabashaija said.

“These include; OTV, Private motor-omni bus, PSV; those are vehicles licensed to transport workers and human beings apart from our own vehicles,” Byabashaija emphasized.

“I have now banned anybody transporting prisoners in a private vehicle that is not licensed and I will take appropriate action against any person who violates this including my officers.”

“You cannot avoid accidents but safety first, our mission is safety, security and humane first of all; safety was compromised and I apologize for that but I will not allow it to happen again.”
