Transport along Kabale-Katuna border was paralyzed on Saturday morning following a fuel tanker explosion at Nyakasharara village in Kicumbi parish, Kamuganguzi sub-county in Kabale district. The incident happened at around 06:00 AM, according to locals.
Eyewitnesses told our reporter that the fuel tanker was heading to Kigali-Rwanda from Mombasa-Kenya. They say that the driver, who could have failed to control the vehicle, came hooting as he drove at a very high speed. They say that in the process, the yet-to-be-identified driver failed to negotiate a sharp corner at Nyakasharara and the vehicle rolled. Immediately the vehicle burst into frames.
