A clinical officer identified as Austin Oswald Abaho, attached to Nyakibale hospital in Rukungiri Municipality, has been killed in an accident along the Rukungiri-Ntungamo road.

The deceased met his death shortly after leaving his workplace at around midnight and heading for Kebisoni, where he has been residing.

Kigezi regional police spokesperson Elly Maate told African Pearl News that the deceased reportedly hit a pothole, causing the motorcycle he was riding to lose control, and he hit his head on a metal road guard rail.

Maate says that the health worker died on the spot, and his body was conveyed to the mortuary at Nyakibale, while the motorcycle registration number UDY 134Y was towed to the Rukungiri central police station.
