approved sans-serif; font-size: small; line-height: 200%;”>The deceased have been identified as George Kahirwe, prescription 43, deputy head teacher of Butiiti Demonstration Primary School and a resident of Kisororo village, Butiti Parish, Butiiti Sub county in Kyenjojo district and Herbert Mwesige, 30, a resident of Mukunyu trading centre.

The accident involved a motorcycle registration number UDB 099G Qwinqwi Red in colour and a bus registration number UAQ 120q belonging to Link Bus Company.

According to Bakari Muga Bashir, the Rwenzori Region Police Publicist, the deceased who were riding a motorcycle at a high speed entered the main road from Butiiti feeder road abruptly before being crashed by the Link bus that was travelling from Kampala to Fort Portal.

Bakari said traffic personnel rushed to the scene and took the bodies of the deceased to Kyenjojo Hospital mortuary for post-mortem.

He, however, appealed to the road users to be extremely careful when joining the main road.


Meanwhile, drama ensued at Kyenjojo hospital when the health workers demanded Shs 200, 000 to carry out a post-mortem for each body.

The hospital has two clinical officers who carry out post-mortem but they are not accommodated at the facility.

According to an eye witness, the clinical officer only identified as Sam was nearly beaten by aggrieved mourners.

They negotiated with the relatives of the deceased and paid Shs 100,000 each body.

No sooner had he finished the two bodies than the body of the student who committed suicide at St. Adolf Secondary school in Katooke came in.

The health worker also demanded Shs 200, 000 for post-mortem.

The relatives are still shocked as to why health workers demand cash for post-mortem reports in government hospitals.
