Dr Violet Kajubiri Froelich, a sister of President Museveni, has been involved in an accident which has also claimed the life of former Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Director of Physical Planning George Agaba.

Police spokesperson Andrew Kaweesi confirmed the accident but could not divulge any more details, requesting to be called back after 10 minutes. He had not responded to our calls by the time of this report.

Ms Kajubiri, a member of the Education Service Commission is nursing a fractured leg at a yet to be disclosed hospital.

She was according to sources airlifted after the accident that occurred shortly after 4pm to an unknown destination.

The accident occurred at at Nyamitanga on the road to Isingiro from Mbarara when the driver, Joseph Kyaligonza was trying to avoid knocking a pedal cyclist and lost control of the vehicle before it overturned. Mr Agaba died on arrival at Mbarara Hospital.

“The president just landed in Mbale from Namutumba and we don’t have communication yet. Call Police,” senior presidential press secretary Don Wanyama said when contacted.

Mr Agaba hit the limelight when he was appointed to the physical planning job at KCCA. He led many operations, some violent, to evict vendors and other city dwellers.

In January 2012, he was accused along with his bodyguard, Santos Komakech Makmot, of shooting and killing one person and injuring five others during a KCCA eviction exercise in Luzira. The operation was to demolish “illegal structures”.
Mr Agaba and Mr Makmot were later cleared of the murder charges by Nakawa High Court presided over by Justice Faith Mwondha.

He was later fired by KCCA Executive Director Jennifer Musisi on allegations of corruption, among other things.

My condolences to the family and friends of Mr. George Agaba, former KCCA Director for Physical Planning, who has died in a nasty motor accident,” Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago posted on his Facebook page after the news of Mr Agaba’s death.
