Letshego Uganda has today donated 4000 reflector jackets to the Uganda Police department of Road Safety whose mandate is to enforce traffic and ensure safety for all road users.

Road safety is one of the most pertinent community issues with 93% of the world’s fatalities on the roads occurring in low and middle income countries. It is estimated that if not curbed, road traffic crashes and accidents are predicted to become the fifth leading cause of death in the world by 2030.

Speaking at the handover ceremony, Giles Aijukwe, the CEO Letshego Uganda, said, “We have over the years established a firm and long standing partnership with the Uganda Police Force in respective Sustainable Development endeavors. Specifically for Road Safety, we started our partnership in 2018 with a contribution of 3000 reflector jackets to our traffic officers as they marshal the highways. I can assure you- Letshego’s commitment in this regard is unwavering.”

Lawrence Niwabiine, the AG Director Traffic and Road Safety noted that, “Achieving lasting change in improved road safety requires government, private partners, civil society and the community to work together. I am particularly gratified with Letshego Uganda for their commitment to this cause and playing their part diligently- they’ve been our partner since 2017.”

Niwabiine added that the timing is a blessing because the festive season is when road travel numbers are at their highest and so are accident cases.

“The reflector jackets will enable our officers be visible from a far to maintain traffic rules and guidelines. These reflectors will immediately be dispatched to Regional Traffic Officers and stations countrywide.” Niwabiine concluded.
