Honorable Richard Tadwong, the minister without Portfolio was involved in an accident on his way from Kabale where he had gone to meet residents on government duty. The accident occurred in Kanyaryeru, about 200km from Mbarara in western Uganda. On of the tyres is said to have got a puncture forcing the Vehicle to veer off the main road.
The other occupants told Red Pepper that the car was stable and the internal airbags all came out that was how the minister and his people survived. Tadwong said he travels a lot and hopes govt will compensate him for the damages on his private car since he was using it on official duty. “They gave me an old Pajero which can’t manage the nature of my work since am up country all the time ”.
He was evacuated in a UPDF chopper sent by the CDF
