Kadongokamu singer Gerald Kiweewa is among the 10 people who have been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Kiweewa was among the people arrested on Saturday during traffic police’s ongoing operation to crack down on errant motorists.
At the time of his arrest, the “Echedaluu” singer was driving a Toyota Corolla Number UAF 542 H. He was arrested at around 2:00am along Nakayiba-Nyendo-Ssenyange division in Masaka District.
ASP Hassan Ssekalema, the Assistant traffic officer said Kiweewa was driving from Kibaale, Lwanda Sub County in Rakai district where he had performed at a concert and was heading to Kampala while still drunk.
At the time of arrest, Kiweewa could not even utter a word due to the effect of excessive drinking.
The arrests come at a time when police is faced with a challenge of reducing on road accidents which have so far claimed hundreds of lives this year, with most police blaming them on errant motorists who don’t respect traffic laws.
