Today the 31st of May 2024, at about 1000hrs at St Lawrence College, Maya, along Kampala Masaka Highway, a fatal accident occurred leading to the loss of lives of three people and many others injured. The injured were taken to medical facilities yet to be identified by police. The accident involved 02 motor vehicles and 04 motor cycles which were part of a motorcade in a procession of National Unity Platform (NUP) Leaders heading to Masaka for consultative activities.

The loss of the innocent lives was a result of recklessness of the drivers and riders who were driving in excess speed without regard to other road users.

Whereas Police Leadership met with the National Unity Platform Leadership at Police Headquarterson the 27.05.2024, and agreed on how to conduct their consultative meetings, NUP have disregarded the agreed position and continue to act with impunity as demonstrated in today’s unfortunate incident at Maya.

As the government Agency mandated to protect life and property, keep law and order, the police management has decided to halt any further consultative activities of NUP as a party with immediate effect until this matter is conclusively investigated and resolved.

We appeal to the public to remain vigilant, observe law and order. Whoever acts contrary to public order and safety shall be held accountable under the laws of Uganda. The safety of Ugandans will always remain our priority.
