Police in Buikwe district are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of Annet Namulondo, the Director of St. Peters Senior Secondary School in Mukono Municipality. Namulondo was found dead behind the steering wheel of her vehicle on Tuesday night along Nkokonjeru-Nyenga road while heading to Kisoga town.
The deceased, who has also been a teacher at Victoria SS in Ssi-Bukunja in Buikwe was traveling in a Toyota Noah Registration Number UAW 476E. Hellen Butoto, the Ssezibwa Region Police Spokesperson, says that the vehicle veered off the road and knocked down a signpost along the road.
However, police observe that much as the deceased knocked down a signpost, preliminary findings show that she was moving at a very low speed and should have been trying to get off the road. “Namulundo’s body was taken to Kawolo Hospital for postmortem and her vehicle driven and parked at Ngogwe Police station pending inspection,” Butoto said.
The news of Namulondo’s death has thrown her colleagues at Victoria and St. Peters secondary school in a somber mood.
Mark Ssembatya, a teacher at St. Peters Secondary school, says that the deceased has been struggling with hypertension for some time. Namulondo’s death comes a year after the death of her husband, Geoffrey JJingo who succumbed to COVID-19. Jjingo was a co-director of St. Peters SS.
