Uganda Cranes players have been involved in an accident on their way to Kampala from meeting with H.E President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni from Soroti.

The Cranes alongside several FUFA officials met with the president on Tuesday morning after he hosted them at a dinner in State House of Monday evening in absentia.

The team was received by Vice President Edward Kiwanuka Ssekandi at State House Entebbe on Monday before heading to Soroti later in the night.

At Soroti, they were received by His Excellence who hailed their effort before they made a return to Kampala.

It’s along Mbale – Kampala Highway that the Bus in which they were travelling got involved in accident as vice-captain at CECAFA Joseph Ochaya explains.

“We got a puncture and the bus lost control. It rammed into a Taxi and a number of people travelling in the taxi are dead. Thank God, we are all fine with minor injuries to Hassan Wasswa Dazo and Denis Okot.”

The KCCA left back however didn’t reveal the Registration number of the Taxi involved.

As usual, we shall keep you posted.
