Ernest Cornel accident

Ex Star Correspondent Ernest Cornel and a Human rights defender Topister Juma of Muhuri are fighting for their lives after being involved in an accident.

According to Muhuri rapid response officer Francis Auma, Topister hit a pothole, lost control of the vehicle and rolled several times before the car hit a tree that stopped the rolling.

“The section of the road they were in was under construction but it is like it had been abandoned so there are a lot of potholes,” said Auma on phone in an interview with the star.

The two were rushed to a nearby hospital by good Samaritans.
