Uganda Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga largely attributed nighttime road accidents to fatigued bus drivers who ply the very busy Kampala – Kigali road.

“The bus drivers understand very well the sharp bends and dangerous spots of that road. The biggest challenge is that they embark on that long journey when they are already tired,” he said.
