    Very sad indeed. Kitalo nnyo bannaffe!!
    Folks be careful while driving at night especially on freeways.
    Kitalo abenganda, abako nabemikwano. Very untimely death. May God fill the emptiness he has left. May He comfort and heal your grief. And may He supply all your needs at this trying time.

    “Show me, LORD, my life’s end
    and the number of my days;
    let me know how fleeting my life is.
    You have made my days a mere handbreadth;
    the span of my years is as nothing before you.
    Everyone is but a breath,
    even those who seem secure.
    Psalm 39:4-5

    How tragic…some of these incidents are really annoying…and yet, God is in control…so sorry!!!

    Kitalo nnyo bambi, it was such a big loss to the relatives, family friends and to all those who knew the late Lwanyaga, yet another big lesson for all of us not to underestimate the importance of gadgets such seatbelts. None of us know when the unexpected will take place in our lives, but prevention is better than cure and “Okwelinda, ssi butti”

    May Lwanyagga’s soul rest in eternal peace.

    kitalo nyo may god rest his soul in peace, At least he had lived his life but he cut it short. Banange my fellow ugandans kyino kigezo from mukama and awake up call. banage okunya novuga its not a good idea and putting a seat belt it is easy as eating matoke.having a seat belt on, could have avoided this tragety and the pain herbert’s family is going through at this time.

    Fena lyekubo.
