  1. May the deceased rest in peace.

    The tragedy aside ,what was the immigration legal status of the deceased ? (Work permits…. etc)

    With Uganda’s high unemployment why do we allow in immigrants to come work as drivers, accountants,marketeers, salespeople etc

    This tragedy should be a wake-up call to immigration department to do searches on these so called investors and their operations to ensure that they are complying with uganda’s laws.

    Also the current policy of issuing visas on arrival should be modified especially for arrivals from Non-African countries and also Our motherland should restrict the issuing of the commonly abused tourist visas to so called tourists from india,Pakistan,Bangladesh,China etc who on arrival start illegally working taking our the limited opportunities for the frustrated and unemployed youths and other Ugandans.

    • The problem is not about someon foreign to be a driver in a foreign country, it’s about taking safety precautions in all areas of our lives and seeking God’s protection. Accidents happens anywea under any circumstance. May the souls of the departed REST IN PEACE

      • Concerned Ugandan

        Road accidents or accidents of any sort are inevitable and no amount of precaution or praying/beseeching any gods will lead to a totally accident free world.

        But the issue of immigrants legal or otherwise taking away the few scarce jobs or business opportunities from Ugandans or even earning disproportionately more than Ugandans is 💯% preventable

        Unemployment / under employment or even limited/scarce business opportunities worsened by foreigners competing and or taking the scarce jobs/opportunities from Ugandans is a great risk to the stability of Uganda with very real dangers of losses of so many Ugandan lives as compared to the this sad tragic and unnecessary loss of 4 foreigner lives.

        And if you are a truly a Ugandan you be more concerned with this avoidable instability as life in refugee camps or even worse dead is not that exciting at least to some of us.

    • You’re right, Ugandans are not allowed to drive or work without driving and work permits in foreign countries. Why do we behave like our country is a pit where every shit can be dumped? please government officials help save our beloved and only country Uganda
