Barely two weeks after city tycoon Juvenal Nsenga was knocked dead as he opened his home gate for his sweetheart Jackie Uwera, Kampala Capital City Authority has made a move to relocate his business from the city as they attempt to reduce on the irritating traffic jam in the city.
The late Nsenga left behind a fleet of trucks that are stationed along Nabugabo road in the city centre. These ferry goods from Kampala to Juba-South Sudan, Kigali- Rwanda, and Goma-Democratic Republic of Congo.
According to Niestelrooy Kananura, a brother of the deceased, they have received a notice from the Kampala Capital City Authority indicating that all Lorries of Nabugabo Road should vacate by 27/01/2013.
“My brother has just died leaving this transport business in my hands and now barely a week KCCA is evicting me. Where should I work from yet the family expects me to maintain the business?” Niestelrooy wondered.
He said that KCCA has given them very little time to prepare yet it’s the same authority that has not showed them where to relocate the business. He called upon city authorities to at least have respect for his dead brother and let him rest in peace by not immediately evicting his business.
The tycoon died on Friday 11/01/2012 when his wife Jackie Nsenga knocked him dead in the wee hours of that morning at their home in Bugoloobi, an affluent Kampala suburb.
Juvenal Nsenga was pronounced dead at Paragon hospital in Bugoloobi where he had been rushed to after sustaining serious injuries. The events that led up to the accident are bizarre. Nsenga had just opened for his wife, Jackline Nsenga, at 3.30am as the guard had gone to the village.
The wife is said to have rung the door bell and went back to the car to wait for the gate to be opened. When Nsenga opened the gate she started the car and drove right through and knocked him to the ground before she reportedly dragged him on the tarmac inside the compound.
Jinja road police traffic boss Francis Onen said Nsenga lost an arm in the process and cracked some ribs. Jackline was driving a Toyota Mark II that was impounded at Naguru inspectorate of Motor vehicles (I.O.V). Onen said they recorded a statement from members who were at the home.
The deceased was last Wednesday laid to rest in Butogota, Kanungu District.
