A Ugandan footballer Tonny Kizito was involved in head on road accident in Loei province, suffering severe injuries on the face, hands, back and legs.

Kizito turns out for Loei Airlines Football Club in the Thailand second division (an equivalent of the Big League in Uganda).

According to his personal friend, also a former U-23 and Uganda Cranes player Abedi Bironse, Kizito was riding on a motor bike at the time he was knocked by a speeding car as he made a u-turn.

The 23-year-old striker was a student at St Mary’s Kitende and trained with Vipers before crossing to Kenya Premier League side Thika United.

Bironse, who stays in Kalasin province was notified of the accident by Loei Hospital authorities who offered first aid to the casualty.

In an exclusive interview with Kawowo Sports on Saturday, Bironse who played at Mbale Heroes and SC Villa before he was summoned to the national U-23 and senior teams stated;

He is now admitted at Loei hospital in Loei province.

He is steadily recovering from the wounds.

The person who knocked him is the very person who called the ambulance for his first aid and met his medical expenses.

“He (Kizito) will be accorded sick leave by the club to come and rest at home for some time as he continues the recovery process,” Bironse, who has since retired from football and is now a teacher in Thailand noted.
