Three people including a bridegroom together with his best man on Sunday perished in an accident on their way from an introduction ceremony.

According to Rwizi Region Police spokesperson, Samson Kasasira, this accident which involved a head-on collision between a Subaru Forester and a taxi occurred at Kahunga Trading Centre on the Ntungamo-Mbarara Highway.

Kasasira has identified the deceased as Eng. Kenneth Twesigye, 31, a bridegroom of Rwikiniro, Ruhama in Ntungamo district and his best man, Eng. Moses Manirakiza of Burungu village in Murambi sub-county, Kisoro district.

The two Engineers, Twesigye (bridegroom) and Manurakiza (best man) were on Sunday afternoon returning from a Kuhingira (giveaway ceremony) when the accident which claimed their lives happened.

Reports indicate that the Subaru Forester: UBN 375Q being driven by Manirakiza had a head-on collision with a Toyota Hiace aka Drone: UBP 314A being driven by Herbert Mujurizi aka Raafu. The Drone was coming from Rukungiri heading to Mbarara.

The Subaru Forester, which was coming from the Mbarara side, was allegedly being driven in the wrong lane leading to the crash with the taxi.

Apollo Tugume, who attended the giveaway, said the giveaway ceremony was unique considering that the best man, the groom’s father, the bride and groom were all engineers.

Missions co-ordinator of North Kigezi Diocese the Rev. Edison Ampaire, said the couple had been cohabiting and that God had already blessed them with twins.

“They had decided to solemnise their marriage but this has not come to pass,” Ampaire said.

The couple, Twesigye and Prize Patience were meant to officially get married at St. Luke’s Church at Ntinda in Kampala on this Saturday December 9, 2023 at 12:00pm.

Eng. Fred Kabagambe, the father of the bride said: “It was a terrible moment to hear such bad news just minutes after they were here celebrating and enjoying”.

Kabagambe said the wedding was to take place on Saturday in Kampala and that his son-in-law (deceased) was at the time of his death, working with the National Water and Sewerage Corporation in Jinja.
