We thank God for safe travels after having happened upon a bad accident where a tanker truck swerved to avoid an oncoming vehicle and spilled it's contents on the road. The petrol caught fire as a local tried to save the driver and both were killed in the falmes. So we had to make a detour into the backroads, travelling through Mabira Forest and nearby Sugar Cane plantations. On the way home we passed through Mukono Town not knowing that there had been amajor riot there and riot police and army had been brought in to calm the situation. Thankfully we passed thru the town as the army and Police were "cleaning up" their operation. We drove thru the town following an armoured vehicle so we felt somewhat safe yet uneasy seeing all the destruction and presence of so many army and police. We were thankful to God to be home safe. Please pray for our continued safety.
