There are many things the Kyaligonza- Sgt. Namaganda incident of last weekend will not leave the same. In one of the incident’s most recent shock-waves, Speaker Rebecca Kadaga has moved to task government on why presently there are many cars with a ‘right of way.’
“Who is entitled to lead cars?” Kadaga asked Internal Affairs Minister Gen. Jeje Odongo during today afternoon’s parliamentary seating before she revealed her experience saying, “This needs to be addressed because they are everywhere. You are in jam and the next thing you see is a Premio with a lead car.”
“I need to go back and check the Law, it’s something I cannot address to this house about right now,” replied Gen. Odongo.
According to the Ugandan Traffic and Safety Act, besides the President, Vice president, Chief Justice, Speaker and Prime minister, the other vehicles that should have a ‘right of way’ include: ambulances, police cars, fire-brigades and military vehicles.
