The NRM diaspora league chairman Mr Patrick Assimwe who was represented by Mr. Robert Kageme said that this comes in response to the recent increase of accidents on Ugandan roads.

NRM diaspora league members have joined Uganda police in disseminating information about traffic awareness in Uganda to avoid accidents.

The Kampala metropolitan traffic commander Senior Superintendent of Police Norman Musinga who flagged off the awareness campaign  at the fire station last week at the clock tower said that Uganda police welcomes any input from the community in helping it reduce accidents.

‘ We need support from the community in reducing accidents because  this will involve people keeping watch over each other not to over speed or drink drive rather than police acting alone for it cannot reach  every corner where people dissert traffic laws that cause accidents'  says Musinga  

The NRM diaspora league chairman Mr Patrick  Assimwe who was represented by Mr. Robert Kageme said that this comes  in response to the recent increase of accidents on Ugandan roads.

 

‘As members  of the NRM diaspora  league, life of  our  people back home is more important than the money we make abroad  therefore we  are touched  by the rapid accidents in Uganda which is one of the ways that people  lose  life.

We are going to try mobilizing the purchase of several speed cameras in order to curb careless driving and over speeding on our roads to save lives' says Kageme.  

The spokesperson NRM diaspora league  Moses Kimuli  said that  rapid accidents in Uganda affect the tourism sector because tourist want to visit countries with good traffic law settings rather than  countries that don't mind about traffic laws hence reducing on our foreign taxes.

Kimuli said that reflector jackets and leaflets were given to boda boda cyclists and taxi drivers as a step to encourage them take the campaign forward.
