Northern Youth MP airlifted to Kampala after accident

Injured member of parliament for Youth in northern Uganda has been airlifted to International Hospital Kampala (IHK) for further treatment.
Oscar Omony and his wife Denise Atimango were airlifted from the military airbase in Gulu yesterday at around 5:22p.m. The couple who had earlier sought treatment at Gulu Independent Hospital, sustained fractured legs following a nasty afternoon motor accident at Palenga bridge in Palenga town council in Omoro district along the Gulu-Kampala highway.

At the time of the transfer, Omony was wearing a cervical collar but medics said he was out of danger. Omony said he had serious pains in the neck and chest. They were traveling from Gulu to Kampala in a Mitsubishi car registration number UAW 260Q at the time of the accident.

It is alleged that they were involved in a head-on collision with a vehicle registration number UAR 436Y belonging to Uganda National Roads Authority (Unra). Maj. Gen Charles Otema Awany, Omony's father declined to speak to press from the military airbase where members of his family and relatives had gathered.
Christopher Okot, Omony's driver remains hospitalized in Gulu Independent Hospital. He could not be transferred by plane due to over bleeding after he sustained multiple fracture to his legs. A maid identified only as Joyce aged 17 was also injured during the accident while three-month old Esther Litesi, Omony's daughter escaped unhurt. 
Gilbert Olanya, the Kilak South member of parliament told the press that Omony had a head-on collision with a double cabin pickup belonging to Unra which had veered off towards the legislator's side. The pickup vehicle was traveling to Moyo district via Gulu with five people on board.
Patrick Jimmy Okema, the Police spokesperson for Aswa River Region identified the occupants of the pick up as Godfrey Ojok, Denis Jagenda, Silver Osimai, Patrick Omara and John Rogers Matovu. They are receiving treatment in St. Mary's Hospital Lacor and their conditions remain unclear.

Last week Charles Angiro Gutumoi, the Erute North MP was injured at Karuma township while traveling to Kampala in his official motorcar. About two weeks ago 23 people lost their lives in a Gaagaa bus accident in Kiryandongo.

The devil is taking blood from Ugandans, the call is for Ugandans to turn from their evil ways and come to accept the Lord Jesus Christ, abandon corruption and immorality.

The change has to start from the national leadership as was in the Biblical days.

I remember these MPs receiving money for cars worth 100m but the cars we see involved in accidents are Noahs, RAV4, Ipsum etc.

Could it be the curse of misusing tax payers money??? If so, then the first victims should be one who moves with sacks of money and motorcades. That one should be taken their creator..

Oh what a relief it will be to this motherland

Quoting Odongkara:
The devil is taking blood from Ugandans,

The change has to start from the national leadership as was in the Biblical days.

Odongkara, Maj. Gen Charles Otema Awany and family members are apparently and mysteriously beginning to pay the physical and emotional prices for Awany's treachery and injustice towards the people of Acholi, especially in Amuru/Nwoya.

Remember, was it last year; his younger brother, Richard Todwong (twoldwong) almost killed himself, when he shot himself.

Remember the suspect who got murdered inside Gulu Prison under the directive of Awany, and whose body, only the devil knows where the poor soul was buried.

In other words, some Ugandans must be afraid! Call it self-fulfilled prophecy or superstition; the ill you do unto others will soon or later catch up with you in kinds.

The wreckage from this accident also demonstrates a high impact due to high speed. It is a miracle that nobody died.

You rush and you will crash!

Odongkara, thanks!

God helps those who help themselves: we have to repent for our sins/misbehaviours, right?

Do Ugandans not believe God can help them if they do the right things?

How can God help Ugandans who are the ones keeping Musevnei in power through a tribalistic system, yet want him out?

God is not a dictator like Museveni. God replaced the 10 Commandments that was tengles at men's heels & replaced it with: love one another!

Even when man wanted to rule himself, God didn't stop him but warned of troubles ahead!

Is it not time Ugandans forgive themselves for past mistakes/misunderstanding & UNITE to throw Museveni out, then go for the kind of governance they want?

The world is waiting for Ugandans to UNITE & not be slaves in the 21 century & in their own country!

Wazza, agreed, but,

Without common leader accepted by Ugandans to take Museveni's place, how will there be relief if he perishes in accident?

Right now, it's Museveni & him alone everything turns around & there is no opposition leadership, right?

But of course Akot frogets the dictator' wife is there to continue family business!

Lakwena, thanks.

It's time Ugandans think of their children because the selfishness, I don't care attitude, selling off of souls to demon Museveni...will destroy the entire country for good!

What e.g of leadership do Ugadans have if not abuse of power, tribalism, nepotism, survival of the fittest through corruption...that has become democracy & normality in Museveni Uganda?

All over people are UNITING & coming out to bring change, except in Uganda where our people are bought off by the very man they want out!

Ah! it's Ugandans handing over tax money to Museveni to buy them off with, starve those he does not need to buy off...& the demon just goes on tribalistically ruling Ugandans without opposition!
