Joseph Nkaheza, the inventor from Mwizi in Mbarara district, is currently admitted after a horrific plane crash.
Nkaheza told edge.ug that he was on Monday testing his locally made plane along Mbarara-Kabale road.
“I was testing if it can fly well just 5km on the side of the road,” a bedridden aviator and engineer said.
The inventor sustained head injuries and was rushed to Ruti clinic for treatment.
“I’m safe. The brain was not damaged,” Nkaheza told edge.ug on Tuesday.
Nkaheza is the first Ugandan to make a local aeroplane that uses petrol fuel.
He also has a locally made motorbike. We wish him a quick recovery.
