The Inspector General of Police, Martin Okoth Ochola has ordered Traffic police to conduct separate investigations into the accident that ended the life of Ritah Nabukenya, a member of the People Power political pressure group.
Nabukenya succumbed to injuries sustained in an accident in Nakawa last Monday.
Addressing journalists yesterday, Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga said the IGP had directed the Traffic police Investigation unit under the command of Assistant Superintendent of Police Pamela Kentaro to conduct a comprehensive probe and ensure the public is informed of whatever transpired on the fateful day.
“The traffic investigations unit has been directed to take over this matter and there have been some good statements,” he said.
“They are doing their very best to identify the rider as well as the motorcycle to consolidate the facts that they already have. We shall have a very conclusive report on the circumstances surrounding Rita’s accident and subsequent death.”
Enanga attributes the police’s failure to produce the CCTV footage to ongoing construction of Nakawa-Ntinda road.
