Joe Walker embarks on another road safety trek

By Stephen Otage 

Deputy Speaker of Parliament Thomas Tayebwa has urged all Ugandans in their different capacities to step forward and do something to stop road carnage.
Mr Tayebwa observed that in December last year, road accidents claimed lives of many Ugandans, including his fellow Member of Parliament Patrick Okabe and his brother-in-law, which calls for mobilisation of all Ugandans to embrace road safety.
“This cause is for all of us. Recently I lost a brother in-law, Bishop Okabe and his wife died in a road accident, Justice Mugamba lost three people on the same day,” he said.

He made the remarks at the Independence Monument in Kampala yesterday morning while flagging off Mr Joseph Beyanga, aka Joe Walker, the head of radio at NMG-Uganda for a 220km walk to Mbale. Mr Tayebwa added that every citizen has a role to play in the development of the country irrespective of their position or occupation.

“Road accidents and environment among others  are things you can’t shoot by the gun, but require public mobilisation to bring the necessary changes,” he said. He said such road safety campaigns would eventually draw the attention of Parliament and other state agencies to come up with appropriate laws for the betterment of society.
“As Ugandans, regardless of our positions, we must come together and fight back. We are all in this together,” Mr Tayebwa said. Read more
