According to Patrick Onyango , Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, the incident was captured in a video circulating on social, wherein a traffic police officer was attempting to stop the vehicle, but instead of complying with the directives, the driver chose to endanger the life of the police officer.

“The driver, identified as Mukwaya Issac, attempted to deceive the authorities by pretending to be sick when brought in for interrogation. However, upon examination, it was determined that he was in normal health and had intentionally inserted the cannula into his hand.”

“Consequently, Mukwaya was arrested and is being detained at CPS Kampala.
The officer, who narrowly escaped being struck by the vehicle, is Katongole Josam.” says Onyango

He adds that they have already preferred three charges against him and these include: Violating traffic lights, Reckless driving and Attempted murder.

“We urge the general public, particularly motorists, to adhere to the instructions provided by our traffic officers.” Onyango added
