The official vehicle for the Minister of State for Youth and Children Affairs, Hon. Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi has this Saturday evening been involved in an accident along the Masaka-Kampala highway.
“The Minister was not in the vehicle at the time of the incident,” said Frank Mugabi, the Communications Officer, Ministry of Gender Labour and Social Development.
The accident happened around Lukaya at about 6:00pm.
Mugabi said the two occupants of the vehicle- the driver and a brother to the Hon. Minister- are currently admitted at Masaka regional referral hospital for medical care.
The highway has claimed hundreds of lives in recent years.
Police earlier this week announced plans to resume operations along the highway to deal with traffic offenders.
