The Government of Rwanda has sent four ambulances to transfer its nationals who were admitted at Mbarara Referral Hospital following the Friday afternoon accident at Nyeihanga along on Mbarara-Kabale road.
Twenty-one Rwandan nationals, who were among those critically injured, were transferred back to Rwanda on Saturday morning.
The accident occurred when an over-speeding Jaguar bus registration number UAG/108T lost control and overturned as the driver avoided colliding with an on-coming bus.
At least 60 of the passengers on board were Rwandan nationals traveling from Kigali to Kampala.
The south western regional police commander Paul Nkore attributed the the accident to reckless driving.
The injured had first been rushed to Mbarara Referral Hospital where they claimed the health officials did not offer emergency response.
Nepo Murindabyuma, the Rwandan Government representative says they had to offer ambulances to come and repatriate their nationals back home for better medical care.
Murindabyuma, however, dismissed claims that they were forced to remove their nationals from Mbarara in Uganda due to poor service delivery.

Dr. Barmabe Habimana of Nasaka district hospital in Rwanda, says they have been forced to transfer the injured Rwandan nationals because of fear that they may not receive better medical attention.

The Mbarara municipality mayor, Wilson Tumwine, who welcomed the Rwandan medical team apologized for the inadequate health services at Mbarara Hospital.

Cue in:……very unfortunate.”//
