The Uganda Police is investigating circumstances under which a Ugandan passenger died on a Modern Coast Bus in Kampala.
The deceased, Shamilah Abduh Azizi, who was on board the Modern Coast Bus from Nairobi to Kampala together with her husband Muhamad Ssekimpi was found dead moments after reaching Kampala.
She is said to have returned from Abu Dhabi where she was working as a domestic worker. Luke Owoyesigyire, the Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police spokesperson explained that police have recorded statements from the husband who claims that the wife was returning to get treatment from Uganda after developing unknown illnesses that caused her to quit the job.
“The body has been taken to the city mortuary for a postmortem report that will help to identify her cause of death, while both the driver of the bus and the husband have recorded statements as the investigations continue,”Owoyesigyire added.
Last week, another passenger Peter Apangu, a resident of Katooke, Bwaise also died in a Taxi travelling from Bwaise to the city centre. The homicide team said the deceased had a swelling on the eye, an indication that he was beaten or hit. This led to the arrest of the driver of the taxi, John Semwogerere and his conductor Bruno Mawejje.
