Burahya County MP Margaret Muhanga says his brother and senior journalist Andrew Mwenda is safe and was never involved in any accident.
Social media was awash with images of an alleged car belonging to Mwenda having been involved in an accident Tuesday.
Reports had suggested the accident took place along the Southern Bypass in Kampala.
“The old man of the clan was not involved in any accident. There he is in the middle of the road and his car packed on the side,” Muhanga explained.
She added: “His friends in the crashed car are also safe and sound.”
Mwenda himself tweeted from his handle saying: “I would like to inform all my family, friends and relatives that I was not involved in a nasty accident, although my friend was.”
He added: “I stopped to help him. Thank you everyone who has sent me messages of support and solidarity.”
