Fear as Kyanja Man Disappears 17 Days to Wedding

A family in Kyanja Parish, Nakawa Division, in Kampala, is in a state of panic after their son went missing ahead of his wedding ceremony, which was slated for March 3, 2018.

Phillip Tumwebaze, 28, left home on an afternoon of February 16 to buy time Airtime but he never returned, said his mother while narrating the ordeal to journalists.

The mother was, however, not quickly occupied with the disappearance of his son as he was supposed to link up with siblings and other relatives for his wedding meeting at Bon Appétit, a hangout along Dewinton Road near National Theatre in Kampala City.

Tumwebaze’s wife-to-be is Mercy Twinomujuni.

It was a few minutes into the closure of the said meeting that an uncle called home to tell the mother that they were about to end the discussions, but Tumwebaze had not turned up.

Unfortunately, Tumwebaze had left his phone in the house so tracing him immediately hit a wall.

A case of a missing person was immediately reported at the nearest police post, the mother said, and it has since been transferred to Kiira Road Police Station.

Family members said that it was not the first time Phillip Tumwebaze was being kidnapped; while in Form 5 at Makerere College School, he was kidnapped while returning home at Nakulabye, a Kampala suburb.


A phone number, 0703 820291, which belongs to his brother David, has been availed in case of help.
