By Edith Kimuli THE minister for Works, Transport and Communications, John Nasasira, has sent condolence messages to the families of aviation officials who died in a plane crash in the Central African Republic. The different messages sent to the bereaved families on Monday said the deceased were, “Uganda’s illustrious sons who excelled in their professional conduct winning respect from colleagues and friends and a good name for the country.” He said it was saddening that at a time when everyone’s effort is most needed to modernise the country, such people, whose contribution to Uganda and the aviation industry had been enormous were lost. “On behalf of the Ministry of Works, Transport and Communications and the entire aviation fraternity I wish to extend our heartfelt condolences to the families, relatives and friends,” the messages said. Captains Charles Haguma, the pilot of Boeing 707 cargo plane, his co-pilot Rutatsyana Migisha first officer Fred Kiirya and flight engineer James Wakikoona Wasika died on Thursday as they tried an emergency landing at Bangui Airport in CAR. The plane was enroute to Brazaville in the Republic of Congo, from Chad. According to reports, Haguma tried an emergency lading after a technical problem. The bodies arrived on Sunday. Ends
