Bwaise: Missing FDC Woman Contender Resurfaces, Placed Under Investigation

Ms Rukia Namuwanga, a Woman Councillor for Bwaise I, II and III and a resident of Kazo Central zone who was allegedly kidnapped on Monday has resurfaced.

According to Kampala Metropolitan police, Namuwanga resurfaced last evening in Wobulenzi in Luwero district.

“She alleges that on Monday, she left her home at 9 am going to the nearby pharmacy to buy drugs,” Police said.

In her statement, Namuwanga told police that she bought the drugs but on her way back home, she was kidnapped by an unknown woman and men who forced her into a waiting car.

“When asked whether she could recognize her captors and vehicle, she told detectives that she couldn’t,” said police.

Inside the vehicle, she alleges that there were two men who blindfolded her and they drove off.

According to her, they reached a certain place, where her captors removed the piece of cloth from her face.  The captors gave her yellow bananas and a tablet. She ate the banana but refused to take the tablet. She was allegedly forced to take it and after that she became unconscious.

At the time she regained conscious, her statement indicates, she realised that she was in a bush and she was weak. She managed to walk up to the road where she met a woman whom she asked to take her to the Chairperson LC I.


The LC I called Police in Wobulenzi that picked her from his home.

Police in Wobulenzi got in touch with their Kawempe counterparts and she was brought to Kawempe Police Station where she made a brief statement and Police directed that she should go for medical treatment.

Meanwhile, police has placed her under investigations since there are some inconsistencies in her statement.

The person who reported her case of disappearance informed police that she went missing at 6 am while Namuwanga says she left home at 9 am.

“Police noticed that the clothes she was putting on were very clean not for someone who has spent two days in the bush. We are still investigating a case of kidnap,” KMP spokesperson SP Patrick Onyango added.
