A journalist at the Nation Television (NTV), Edward Muhumuza, died in a car crash along Entebbe Expressway, Uganda on Saturday morning.
The collision occurred at Mpala on the Entebbe Expressway, involving a Toyota Passo automobile he was driving.
Muhumuza's close friend said: "He was going to school, he spent the better part of the night working on his coursework, then in the morning he set off."
He worked with Vision Group before joining NTV.
According to eyewitnesses, the deceased lost control of his vehicle at 7 a.m., a few yards after the Mpala UNRA toll gate, while going from Kampala to the Entebbe side.
"He veered off the road, the car jumped over the trench, flew into the sky and hit the huge signpost before rolling off the steep," one of the eyewitnesses said.
Muhumuza was travelling to Nkumba University, where he was pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in media and public relations, according to coworkers.
Muhumuza's body had since been transferred to Mulago City Mortuary for a post-mortem.
