Mpigi: Parent Dies in Car Crash After Dropping Children at School


Police in Mpigi are conducting an investigation into the circumstances surrounding a car crash that claimed the life of a parent shortly after dropping his children at Gombe Secondary School.

The victim, Mr. Sulaiman Sserugoti Kadogo, aged 51, was not only a parent but also served as the chairperson of Kasanja Central Village and held the position of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) chairperson in Kasanje Town Council, Wakiso District.

Mr. Kadogo was driving a Toyota Harrier with registration number UBF 945M. In the car, there was his daughter (identified only as Nakazzi) and two grandchildren. Fortunately, the trio survived the crash but sustained injuries. They were promptly rushed to Mulago National Referral Hospital for further medical attention.

An eyewitness, Mr. Vincent Kizito Mutalemwa, provided an account of the incident. He explained that when Mr. Kadogo reached Sseta Village on the Mpigi-Kanoni Road, the vehicle veered off the road and plunged into a trench.

Mr. Mutalemwa stated, “The driver was speeding while talking on the phone. He failed to negotiate a sharp corner and plunged into a trench, dying instantly behind the steering wheel.”

Mr. Karim Majid, the acting Katonga regional police spokesperson, confirmed that investigations were underway to determine the exact cause of the crash. He mentioned that a detailed statement would be released by the traffic department after evidence had been collected and investigations completed.

Reportedly, Mr. Kadogo had first dropped off one of his children at Pride College School in Mpigi before proceeding to Gombe Secondary School. The news of her husband’s tragic death reached his wife after she had already taken other children to a different school in Masaka.
