Car accident kills all four Ndejje SS students 

A fatal car accident has claimed the lives of all four Ndejje SS Bombo students who were reportedly headed to the school to pick their Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) examinations results.

According to available information, the four students were self-driving before their car got involved in a nasty accident along Bombo road after ramming into a stationary truck today morning.

Vincent Male, Cedric Ndugga and Isaac Ssewajje died on the spot while Timothy Njogera also passed on moments later at Bombo military hospital. The deceased had recorded and posted a video on social media moments before the accident. 

The eight-second video footage shows three of the four students in buoyant mood in the car on their way to the school. One of them shouts in Luganda: “We are coming, we are coming Ndejje!”

In the video, Njogera is seen seemingly sipping on a soft drink.

Guess they were only being kids, wanting to reach school and show off that they have moved to another level.

SAD, SAD, And VERY SAD! Only this week we were discussing the merits/demerits of private schooling in Uganda.

I suppose this is one example of "rich kids" showing off in their parents' car. In my our days, the results were sent to you by post.

Now this government, even with the so called advance in technology should have done better; saving these kids' lives. Ga Kitaalo!

Youths are very active group and always very excited assuming they succeeded well.

They are supposed to be cautioned in such a situation as it's not good on traffic as they drive a long.

Very unfortunate may their soul rest in peace.

But again we need to thoroughly test the skills our teenagers before allowing them onto the steering, just two weeks ago, I stopped to talk to one of the Traffic Police officers by the road side if at all they asks motorist about the knowledge of Highway Code or a copy of it, it turns out they don't even think about it waiting only if the In charge of traffic in Uganda police issues instruction to do so, so sad, RIP.

My prayers for the children & their families/friends, may their souls rest in peace, now that they are in the hands of God!

Accidents are caused by: bad roads, drugs/drunk driving, mobile phones drawing attention away...!

The solutions to reducing accidents lies in the hands of everyone & good governances comes first so that people are given chance to development & have good roads... & awareness in just living safely!

Good roads/means of transport & behaviours concerns EVERYBODY, even those in power who believe they can live well in a country without good roads/housing for citizens: the bad roads are used by ALL while bad means of transport is danger to ALL too!

Is this not why museveni makes sure Kampala-Entebbe road is good so that he risks no accident?

Do mps-ministers feel safe on roads when travelling to constituencies/deplacement, even in their well serviced cars?

Parents arent supposed to give children vehicles to use as they want.

Incase of issues like this a senior driver should have taken this students to collect their testominals otherwise results were relayed on phone internets where every student was able to access to the results.

Wealth shouldnt be mis used now we have lost very promising young ones.

This is a very sad and trying moments for the parents, it is almost obvious that the guy on the steering wheel does not have a driving permit as the law does not allow them to drive before they are 18yrs.

I also want to believe that these kids had either hired the car or they picked it from home without their parents permission
