An accident occured on Monday along the northern bypass when a motorcycle, commonly known as Boda boda was allegedly knocked by the convoy of President Museveni on the road.

This incident happened at Ssentema when a boda boda rider that was carrying two other passengers  was allegedly knocked by the presidential convoy that was en-route to State House Entebbe.

“Whereas other vehicles had been stopped, the boda boda rider tried to move in front of one of the cars that had stopped to give way to the convoy. The rider rammed into the convoy,” an eyewitness said.

It is said that three people including the rider and the two passengers were injured and have since been rushed to Mulago and Mengo hospitals for medical attention.

SFC spokesperson said they are monitoring the medical condition of the three injured people in a bid to offer financial assistance to cater for the medical bills.
“We are monitoring their condition and we shall make sure they are given the required medical attention. We shall make sure they get out of hospital well.”

The SFC spokesperson however warned motorists against disrespecting the presidential convoy and its right of way.
“Our message to riders and drivers is that respect for the right of way should be given due attention however much you are in a hurry. You have to give the right of way to the presidential convoy,” Maj Omara urged.

Under the Traffic and Roads Safety Act, and the Highway Code, the presidential convoy has a right of way as stipulated  in the laws of the country.
