The Kagadi territorial police have arrested Tibihikira Stephen to assist in the investigations of a fatal traffic accident that occurred on 26/02/2024 around 8:00 am at Iguruka during a demonstration by residents of Muhoro, Bwikara, and surrounding areas, and a group of boda boda riders protesting deteriorated roads due to rain damage.

Preliminary reports indicate that the area LCV chairperson and his team responded to assess the situation. However, a vehicle he was traveling in, registered as UG 6998M and belonging to the District Health Office, driven by Tibihikira Stephen, a Kagadi local government driver, was traveling at high speed when it struck and killed Magezi Tumuhaise, 25, a resident of Rwenzori Cell, Kayanja Parish, Mayirirwe Subcounty, in Kagadi District.

The deceased person was reportedly among the demonstrators. The driver fled the scene afterward, but he was later arrested.

The victim’s body was conveyed to the mortuary. Community members are encouraged to seek intervention from relevant authorities for amicable solutions to their issues rather than resorting to unlawful assemblies and illegal demonstrations.
