Edward Muhumuza, a journalist for Nation Television (NTV), died in a car accident on the Entebbe Expressway.
The accident occurred on Saturday morning at Mpala on the Entebbe Expressway, involving a Toyota Passo car he was driving.
“He was going to school, he spent the better part of the night working on his coursework, then he set off in the morning,” said Muhumuza’s close friend.
Prior to joining NTV, he worked for Vision Group.
According to eyewitnesses, the deceased lost control of his vehicle around 7 a.m., a few metres after the Mpala UNRA toll gate, while driving from Kampala to Entebbe.
“He veered off the road, the car jumped over the trench, flew into the sky, and hit the huge signpost before rolling down the steep,” said one of the witnesses.
Muhumuza was driving to Nkumba University, where he was studying journalism and public relations, according to coworkers.
Muhumuza’s body was taken to Mulago City Mortuary for a post-mortem.
