A plane carrying six US marines made an emergency landing at Kiwawu along the Kampala-Mityana highway on Friday July 18th. The plane destined for Juba in South Sudan made a U-TURN and attempted to return to Entebbe International airport after it started experiencing technical difficulties mid-air.


Phillip Mukasa, the Police spokesperson of the Wamala region says the plane couldn’t continue to South Sudan due to bad weather and technical difficulties so it turned back but run out of fuel before it could safely make it to Entebbe. However, all the US Army personnel on the plane disembarked safely & luckily there were no injuries or traffic on the road when the plane made the emergency landing.
