The police have confirmed that the chairperson of Hoima District, Kadiri Kirungi, along with his bodyguard PC Bosco Otim, died in a fatal motor accident on March 17.
The accident occurred when the vehicle they were travelling in collided with a truck carrying pavers along the Kampala-Hoima Highway in Kiboga District. The truck driver, who was trying to avoid a pothole, collided with Kirungi’s car, causing the accident.
The bodies of the deceased were taken to Kiboga Hospital Mortuary for postmortem, and the district will now head to a by-election to fill the vacant seat. Kadiri, a former broadcaster at radio Liberty FM, won the 2021 general election with 20,391 votes on the NRM party ticket.
The deceased district boss’ body was received in Hoima in the wee hours of Saturday ahead of burial, tentatively planned for March 19 in Buswekera Village.
