KAMPALA – Police Spokesperson CP Fred Enanga has trashed allegations that indicates the police patrol knocked down the late youthful Ritah Nabukenya because of her political affiliation as claimed by Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu.
In a statement released on Tuesday, February 25, Mr.Enanga noted that contrary to the narrative shared by the Kyadondo East MP, initial investigations into the matter indicate that Ms Nabukenya died after a boda boda accident.
The police at Jinja road continues to actively investigate circumstances surrounding the fatal accident involving two motorcycles that occurred on February 24, 2020, at Naguru road behind Nakawa market, Mr. Enanga said.
“The findings indicate that it was not a police-involved accident and our driver is not responsible. It was further established, that at the time of the double bodaboda crash, the victim was putting on a black light trouser, with a cream blouse and there was nothing like a red cap or T-shirt associated with Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi supporters,” he said.
According to the police Spokesperson, the narrative carried out by Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi was a deliberate and orchestrated attempt to cover up the fact that the victim died from crash injuries, caused by the double bodaboda accident, for his political leverage.
“As always, we work to conduct thorough investigations and will not be diverted from the major investigation,” reads an excerpt.
Enanga further revealed that efforts are in place to track down the two riders of the bodabodas and also locate the hidden motorcycles.
He added that “We have also parked our police patrol car at Jinja road police station, for inspection by the Inspector of vehicles, although it is intact with no damage. We are meanwhile analysing the CCTV footage and investigating why the crew members on the patrol car failed to secure the motorcycles and also apprehend the suspects.”
