Charles Nampendo, the Senior Physical Planner of Jinja city says that two plots along the main street are undeveloped whereas, eight others were condemned as unfit for human habitation but the owners are yet to respond positively.
A detective privy to this matter told URN on condition of anonymity that Opendi revealed that Mbasa was coordinating a racket of street children who use pliers and other sharp objects to pluck number plates from vehicles normally parked along streets for long hours.
On Tuesday afternoon, Dr. Florence Tugumisirize, the Director Jinja Regional Referral Hospital told journalists that Muwema was part of the staff contracted by the MOH to boost the human resource in their COVID-19 Treatment Unit-CTU in June last year.
Trouble for Muwema started on Saturday evening when he allegedly parked his vehicle registration number, UBG 997H along Iganga road in the Southern division in Jinja city and turned up music where they partied and took beers together with 30 others.
The accident occurred at the railway crossing line blocking vehicles from crossing from either side. Eye witnesses told URN that the incident occurred at around 8:30 pm when the truck driver failed to stop for the train to cross.
Nuru Mubeezi, a trader along Main Street says that they alerted police after hearing a big blast from the sack. “We saw the burning sack being dropped in the middle of the road and most of us were thinking that its’ the usual garbage protests within the city. However, about 20 minutes later, the sack kept on releasing big blasts, prompting us to alert police,” she said.
The vendors note that since most commodities are scattered along the different streets within Jinja town, most people prefer buying from the street vendors instead of wasting their time to enter the shops or market.
