WAKISO. At least 30 Senior Four candidates of Mubende Parents’ SS have been involved in a nasty accident at Bulenga, in Wakiso on Friday morning, with two hopitalised in critical condition.
There are conflicting details on the cause of the accident with two accounts alluding to a tyre burst while another cause is attributed to a mistake likely to have resulted for the driver’s attempt to overtake from the wrong side that had a ditch.
