Kinyara Sugar Limited Cane Vehicle (KCV- 1138) whose registration number plate was removed has spent three days on breakdown along Nyanjura Nyabeho road in Masindi town.
According to eye witness who chose anonymous, the cane vehicle lost control on sharp corner on Saturday evening due to flat tire causing accident. Though the accident was minor, road users are blaming Kinyara Factory for failing to repair and withdraw their vehicle from sharp corner noting that it may cause more accidents.
Mr. Monday Issa narrates that the cane vehicle lost control thus causing an accident. “Yesterday Kinyara Sugar Factor workers came and offloaded the canes, but left the vehicle on sharp corner, in addition they overload and over speed,” He further narrates.
The angry road user has appealed to the factory officials to intervene and withdraw their vehicle noting that it’s risky and may continue causing accidents since it’s at the sharp corner.
According to Mr. Patrick Atibo a boda boda rider, the vehicle overturned at the sharp corner, later they offloaded the canes and was pulled to the other side of the road. He explains that it’s putting travelers lives in danger mostly during night hours since it’s at the sharp corner.
When our reporter contacted Mr. Richard Wanok the Communications manager Kinyara Factory Limited for a comment on the matter, he did not respond to our repeated phone calls.
In an effort to get a comment from Mrs. Sharon Araku the OC Traffic Masindi CPS was futile by press time because she didn’t respond to our repeated phone calls. When approached her office, a Traffic officer who chose anonymous and declined to be recorded said, “We were informed on Saturday morning, and we sent our team to the scene, Kinyara Sugar Factory pledged to withdraw their vehicle immediately but it’s of surprise that the vehicle is still at the scene.”
The vehicle was still at the scene by press time, and Kinyara officials were just bypassing it!.
