A female pedestrian was killed on Monday afternoon around Kajjansi along Entebbe road after being knocked by the official car of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party Secretary General, Justine Kasule Lumumba.
The deceased has been identified as Jane Namara and according to a statement issued by Rogers Mulindwa, the NRM communications officer, Lumumba escaped unhurt.
“NRM Secretary General Hon Justine Kasule Lumumba has this Monday afternoon got involved in a road accident when a female pedestrian rammed into her official car around Kajjansi along Entebbe road. The lady, whose identity has not yet been established has been reported dead. Eye witnesses claim the deceased was talking on phone as she crossed the road,” Mulindwa’s statement reads in part.
