SPORTS state minister Charles Bakkabulindi on Thursday sought an apology from India over a freak accident at the Commonwealth Games Village that left three Ugandan officials injured.

Chef de mission Wilson Tumwine and two national olympic Committee employees Irene Matovu and Julie Acom were involved in the accident after a security man pressed a wrong button in the late hours of Wednesday night, which hit their vehicle and threw it off the road as they entered the games village.

“We are disappointed at the turn of events. We want an apology from the Indian officials. The fact that they are ill-treating us and playing down the whole incident is shocking,” Bakkabulindi told Times Now channel.

“The injured were not treated well at the Games and we want an apology from the Organising Committee. We don’t treat people like this in our country and here the officials are not owning up for their mistake. We expect better treatment,” he said.

“Our concern is why (the Indian) government has not come with an official apology,” Bakkabulindi said.
Security officials at the Village maintained it was a technical fault that the radio barrier got activated.
