One student of Hoima School of Nursing and Midwifery has died while several others have been injured in a bus accident.
The accident occurred at midnight on Thursday when the students were being returned to school from Greater Kibaale districts where they were for practical. Albertine Region Police Spokesperson Julius Hakiza confirmed the incident but could not readily give details.
