It’s said accident has no formula. If this thinking is really right, then there is nothing we can calculate here to estlabish cause of road carnage but more of questioning how, why and what is happening to Gaagaa Bus Company Limited.

Within a ‘short frequency’, a bus belonging to Gaagaa Bus Company Limited is involved in a nasty road accident, and dozens of lives have been lost, and properties worth millions, if not billions get destroyed as well.

In a fresh road accident on Sunday, Gaagaa bus, registration number UBD 991Y from Kampala heading to West Nile’s town of Koboko is involved in an accident.

This time, the bus went into flames and burnt entirely at Mbaro-oryang East village, Nyaravu sub-county in Nebbi district. Eye witnesses say it occurred at around 4:32pm

Good luck, all the 65 passengers on board escape uninjured, while the driver identified as Kasim Kayimbi is still on the run – police says.

This is not the first time this year Gaagaa bus is involved in such nasty accident.

From northern Uganda to Kampala, West Nile to Kampala and vice-versa, accidents are being registered, within small duration.

Speaking to media, Rogers Amanya, the OC Traffic Nebbi police station said “all the passengers aboard escaped unhurt but the bus was completely burnt.”

“We had 65 passengers on board but no one was hurt. They managed to all escape unhurt. We are currently looking for the driver a one Kasim Kayimbi who disappeared after realizing that things had gone wrong,” Amanya further said.

He linked the accident to a tyre that burst after the bus hit a hump. 

Aso, Denis Juma, the manager Nyaravur Gaagaa bus terminal said there was no fatality and the police with the help of the company team managed to relocate the passengers to another bus. 

Nearly four years ago, in 2016 at Matuga, a Gaagaa bus registration number UAP 759H travelling to Paidha district had an accident (also caught fire) and more than 60 passengers were on board.
