PRESIDENT Yoweri Museveni has lamented the rampant carnage at black spots on Ugandan roads which have claimed numerous lives, the latest being that of Attorney General Francis Ayume.
In a condolence message read by Vice-President Gilbert Bukenya at Ayumeâ€™s funeral service at Namiremebe Cathedral yesterday, Museveni said he was angered that the black spots were not marked to warn drivers or humps erected for motorists to reduce speed when approaching them.
Ayume died at Kyangonwa in Nakasongola district, a spot which the Police said is notorious for accidents.
â€œThe unending carnage on our roads has robbed us of our Attorney General and Mr. Michael Geriga,â€ Museveni said.
â€œWe are very sorry about this oversight and promise that something will be done,â€ he added.
Museveni said passengers must report bad drivers. â€œWith this era of mobile telephones, it should be easy,â€ he said
Museveni described Ayume as a â€œdedicated worker who valued his time and work, who reached the top of his profession as Attorney General through hard work and ability.â€
