JINJA: Early this week we reported a story of a grisly accident that occured in Buwenge Town Council in Jinja district where a lorry carryingsugar cane registration number UAK 344V failed to go uphill at Walumbe junction and rolled back and overturned.

As police and residents were trying to remove the truck and clear the road, another speeding lorry registation numer UAK 996Z also loaded with sugar cane failed to break and rammed into them killing seven instantly.

After the ordeal, police rushed the injured in the different hospitals for medical attention and bodies were taken to Buwenge General Hospital for postmortem.

However, the aftermath of this traggic accident has taken another dimension as residents claim hungry dogs stormed the mortuary were the bodies were being kept and feasted on the dead bodies.

The hungry residents further allege some of the dead bodies were found with missing parts, they also reveal the mortuary is in a sorry state and when it rains, the water flood through the small room and they have threatened to bring it down if nothing is done.

However, Dr. Stephen Baligeya the in charge Buwenge Health Centre IV says they have nothing to do about it because they already passed the budget to build a new mortuary but the Jinja district council has remained reluctant.
