Total Uganda has dismissed social media reports claiming there is a fire at its Kawempe division petrol station.
Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, SP Patrick Onyango, said there are fake photos circulating in the social media purported to be from Total Patrol station Kawempe.
The allegations are that the patrol station has caught fire and several people have died.
“The truth of the matter is that there is no any fire out break at Total Patrol station, Kawempe,” Onyango explained.
“We have not registered any incident at the said patrol station. Disregard any rumours in relations to Total Petrol stations.”
Onyango said police is investigating the source of this rumour.
