  1. even after the person is surely been seen by the naked eye to have been knocked and killed by the speeding truck, do you have to do a postmotem, whatever that is to eslablish the cuase of death ….pleaaaassse, police, begin thinking outside the box not like the early sixties

    1. It’s a matter of law . The courts need a formal declaration
      of cause of death and a post mortem is thus required since the doctor who is supposed to give the expert opinion is not at the accident scene. Think of it as an Exam. You get examined yet the teacher knows that you attended class. But without the formal results anyone can later come and say you were not actually in class . But with your results slip you can show you actually were

  2. Police in Uganda drives so recklessly, the Driver should be examined to see if he was under the influence of drugs, Mwenge, boasting, stupidity and corruption

    1. when we say the so called police is outdated ,pple object our aurgument,now let them see it phisically,since they are the untouchables of the state ,time will just judge them
