Rose Muyinza Ssebaggala, the woman who recently sustained severe injuries when her car was hit by a Umeme transformer along Dewinton Road in Kampala has been taken for further specialized treatment at Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi.

Muyinza was admitted at Mulago National Referral Hospital after the two poles supporting the transformer gave way.

Her car, a Toyota Voxy reg no. UAT 591S, was struck as she drove by on April 11. She was discharged on Easter Sunday, but she continued to feel pain and other complications while at her home at Lutete along Gayaza Road.

After New Vision published a story of her plight, Umeme officials together with OAN Insurance, visited Muyinza at her home in Lutete and offered to immediately get her specialized treatment and later process compensation for her car.

She chose to be treated at Aga Khan University Hospital where she had been told of specialized doctors.

On Friday, the Umeme official spokesman, Stephen Ilungole led a team that handed her an air ticket to fly to Nairobi. She boarded a Kenya Airways flight at 5PM and was accompanied by her nephew.

"As Umeme we offer to get Muyinza all the treatment that she needs to recover well and later process compensation of her car," Ilungole said.

He explained that Umeme would also refund all the expenses Muyinza had incurred ever since she got the accident.
