Action now,please. Everyday now we are losing our best treasure,Ugandans Lives have no price !!
Police and gallant UPDF secure our roads to prevent further loss of life.!!
Last year if I remember there was a fanfare of a French Company - Surveyance Internationalle- are they not responsible for checking these vehicles? Our life is cheaper than a loaf of bread; they put a lot of effort in caring for rhinos and zils for for us!
