Deborah Nasiremde, a family member, reported that the driver mentioned that Liam, seated next to him, unexpectedly opened the door and fell out, leading to the tragic incident.

However, Liam’s family remains skeptical of this explanation. They question why the bus driver and a matron failed to drop off Liam at their home, a mere two kilometers from the accident site.

Additionally, they express concerns about allowing Liam to occupy the co-driver seat without proper supervision.

Expressing frustration with the school’s silence, Mercy Nasirembe stressed the importance of obtaining clarity, stating, “In as much as I have lost my son, I need to know what really happened.”

A postmortem examination revealed that Liam’s tragic death resulted from severe head injuries sustained from being struck by the bus.
