Reports coming in indicate that a female Congolese national has been kidnapped from a hotel in Kampala.
Sources identified the victim as Nganga Bibiche Bola.
Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Luke Oweyesigire said he had heard about the incident in rumours but didn’t have “official information” about it.
“I will update you as soon as I get a briefing on the matter,” said Oweyesigire.
The development comes against the backdrop of increased cases of death, kidnaps and disappearances of locals and foreigners in city hotels.
Police have previously reassured the country of their commitment to maintain security in the city.
