Dr Gawin said, of the 16 survivors that were hospitalised, six were discharged last week while 10 remain in the ward and are stable and doing well.

Last week, the general manager for Higaturu Oil Palm, Mike Jackson received a petition from families of the deceased who have demanded K50 million from the company for the recent road accident that claimed the 13 lives and 15 other accidents, allegedly caused by the company’s fruit trucks in the past.

Last Monday, a PMV from Timbeki and Barevaturu villages, travelling into Popondetta town collided into an oil palm fruit truck, belonging to Higaturu Oil Palm at East Ambogo. Of the 29 passengers on board, 13, including two children were killed and 16 survived. Provincial authorities claimed this has been the worst road accident in recent times.
