Mushabe died on Monday morning on his way to Ruhoko Health Center III. The accident occurred around 11:00 Am along Kashuku road in Ibanda Municipality.

Denis Akabigumira, a student at Ibanda University, says the place where Mushabe was hit is a dangerous spot that has claimed the lives of many people and left many others nursing injuries. He wants the leaders to install traffic lights or zebra crossing around the area.


Frank Karemera, another eyewitness says that much as Mushabe was hit by the truck, he says that his life could have been saved if he was evacuated immediately. The postmortem from Ruhoko Health center shows that Mushabe succumbed to head injuries.

The Ibanda District Police Commander, Emilly Angomoku says the accident was a result of human error from both the victim and the truck driver who was speeding. “We acknowledge that the accident was from both human error and overspeeding on the side of the truck driver, but we are still investigating the matter,” he said. 

Mushabe will be laid to rest at his ancestral home in Kashangura 1 Cell, Kashangura Ward in Kagongo Division. Mushabe defeated John Bosco Bakyenga in the just concluded elections to become the Chairperson of Kagongo Division.

According to the police annual crime report, there was a 4.7% reduction in the number of crashes reported in 2020 from 12,858 crashes reported in 2019 to 12,249 crashes.
