The Woman Member of Parliament for Namutumba district is in trouble for failing to compensate a man she knocked in 2016.
A 33 year Gamusi Jimmy Constantine has petitioned the Regional Traffic Officer for Busoga East for help after Hon Mariam Naigaga and her husband Gakuwire Wilberforce failed to compensate him after their vehicle knocked him.
Gamusi said he was knocked by a vehicle registration number UAU 396E belonging to the two at Kaliro road while he was riding his bicycle back to his home in Kasokoso in Iganga Town.
The incident occurred at Kaliro road when a speeding vehicle hit and left him in critical coma.
“I was admitted at Iganga hospital where Hon Mariam Naigaga came to check on me and promised to compensate me after.” Gamusi said.
Both Hon Naigaga and her husband Mr Gakuwoire have since denied Gamusi’s claim yet after the victim opened a case file TSD/14/8/4/2016, they had agreed to compensate him.
When we contacted the RTO Kiberu Grace, he said he was aware of the incident and said he had summoned the file from Iganga CPS to his office before taking action.
Gamusi said he wants a compensation of around 50m shillings from Mr. Gakuwoire and his wife.
