A student of Kyambogo Univesity was Wednesday crushed dead by a machine at his internship place in Ntinda industrial area.

Wycliffe Beinomugisha, a second year student of Environmental Engineering was reportedly trying to operate a machine before it cut him deep through the thigh.

According to George Henry Kitakule, the University’s Minister for Information, Communication, Transport and Mobilization, Beinomugisha bled out and died while being chauffeured to the hospital.

Prior to Joining Kyambogo, Beinomugisha went to Mackay Memorial College and Namirembe Hillside high school where he studied ‘O’ and ‘A’ level respectively.

Beinomugisha’s demise has sparked a hot debate about the safety and insurance of engineers working in such harzadous places.

“Do students on Internship in dangerous environments have insurance cover?” wondered a one Kiwanuka Kituuka.

Posting on social media, students and the working class, most of who went through Kyambogo University have demanded that close supervision be accorded to the students to avoid any such occurances.

“It becomes difficult to apportion blame, however, what is important is that students on Internship in environments that are dangerous need supervision most of the time.”

Beinomugisha will be laid to rest at his ancestral home in Ibanda District, Western Uganda.
