Residents of Kagongo Division in Ibanda Municipality in Ibanda district are still shocked by the sudden death of their LC III councilor for People with Disabilities.
The late Joas Asingwire died in a motorcycle accident on Saturday after losing control while trying to cross over a dilapidated man made bridge.
An eye witness who is a resident of Kashangura ward in Kagongo division, Polly Ndyabahika told the www.mknewslink.com that the deceased fell into the hole while crossing the bridge made of timber.
“The councilors and the residents have been asking the LC 111 council of Kagongo division to allocate some money to repair such bridges that are in poor state but all in vain,” Ndyabahika told the press .
“We have even rushed many people to Ibanda hospital and Ruhoko health 1V center for treatment after falling into the running water, but this time we have buried our councilor Asingwire,”Amos Byamugisha, a bodaboda operator from Ibanda town lamented.
The body of Asingwire was laid to rest yesterday in Kashangura in Kagongo division
