IMPROVING: Rose Muhinza recuperating in hospital

The health condition of Rose Muhinza, the lady who was rushed to hospital in critical condition after a UMEME transformer crashed her car has greatly improved.


Taking a look at the car along Dewinton Road in which Ms Muhinga was driving at the time of the nasty accident, few believed the occupant of the car was still alive.

Even those at the scene who had witnessed her being removed from the wreckage of the car were worried she would not make it to hospital.

Luckily, she made it despite having been taken when she was in a coma. We have since learnt that her condition has drastically improved and that she can now even speak.

Electricity distribution company Umeme linked the accident to vandalism. “Preliminary investigations indicate that the network may have been interfered with, causing the transformer structure to fall onto the vehicle. Comprehensive investigations are still underway to establish the actual cause of this unusual occurrence,” Umeme said in a statement.

Muhinza’s son Richard Kigozi, who rushed to the scene following the accident, said his mother had left him at the nearby Walusimbi’s Garage, only to learn minutes later that she was involved in an accident.
