Four inmates killed, others injured in Lwengo accident

At least four inmates from Kakondo Prisons in Lyantonde District died and about eight others sustained severe injuries following a Wednesday morning road accident at Kiterede Village, Malango Sub-county in Lwengo District.

According to eyewitnesses, the inmates were moving to a yet to be known destination in a Toyota Saloon car Reg. No. UBF472K.

Scores including some prison warders, more than four other prisoners, and the car driver were seriously injured and were rushed to Lyantonde Hospital.

Speaking to this reporter shortly before they were evacuated, the drive and one prison warder claimed that “one of the prisoners jumped and grabbed the vehicle’s steering wheel- causing a scuffle as he tried to control the car leading to the accident.”

When contacted on Wednesday, Uganda Prisons Spokesperson Mr Frank Baine had not independently confirmed the tragic incident and police had not disclosed details on the accident by press time.
