Kampala, Uganda • Current Affairs, Health & Fitness, Investigative Reporting

Uganda is grappling with a concerning surge in road crashes, resulting in tragic loss of life and injuries. As a journalism student passionate about impactful reporting, you have a unique opportunity to shed light on this critical issue. Let's delve into the details:
BODY 
   According to the Read moreUganda Police Force Annual Report for 2023, road crashes increased by a staggering 30% from 3,210 in 2022 to 4,179 in 2023¹. These numbers represent real lives lost, families shattered, and communities affected.
   The burden of road traffic deaths falls heavily on pedestrians, passengers on boda bodas (motorcycle taxis), and the riders themselves. These vulnerable groups face disproportionate risks on Uganda's roads. My reporting will  humanize these statistics by sharing personal stories of those impacted.
I will  investigate the root causes behind this surge. Factors such as reckless driving, speeding, and distracted driving play a significant role. Additionally, poorly maintained roads and inadequate traffic enforcement among others.
  I intend to answer this questions;
1. How is the Ugandan government addressing this crisis?.
2. Are road safety campaigns effective?
3. What policies are in place, and are they being enforced?.
I will  Interview experts, officials, and NGOs working on road safety initiatives.
I intend to engage with survivors, families of victims, and local communities.
Conclusion:
My  reporting has the potential to raise awareness, hold authorities accountable, and advocate for safer roads. By amplifying these stories, I'll contribute to a safer Uganda.
