Kidnapped woman Susan Magara found dead

The body of Suzan Magara, a 28-year-old cashier who has been missing since February 7 has been discovered this morning dumped in Kigo off the Entebbe expressway.

The body was found by residents of Kigo, who later alerted the police.

RIP: Susan Magara was kidnapped on February 7

Magara, a cashier with Bwendero Dairy Farm (BDF) along Kabaka Anjagala road in Rubaga was reportedly kidnapped while driving to her home in Lungujja, Lubaga Division early this month. Her motor vehicle was found abandoned on the roadside after the kidnap.

Kampala metropolitan police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire Confirmed the discovery but said details on the circumstances surrounding her death were still scanty.

"It is true we found her body. We shall give the details soon," Owoyesigyire told URN.

The Police Flying Squad have been handling the search for Magara. A source within the unit told URN that the family had stopped working with the police shortly after they were asked for a ransom of Shs 60 million by the kidnappers. Other family members claim the kidnappers had raised their ransom to Shs 3 billion in recent days.

"The kidnappers warned them not to bring in the police or their loved one would be killed," says the source that preferred anonymity.

We have always condemned lawlessness but many Ugandans have chosen to ignore us!

None of us is safe. Thanks to KAIHURA. May her soul rest in peace.

This is kidnap issue is a "new development" that should worry Ugandans. Someone in authority should get to the bottom of this .

To begin with, there are so many "dubious foreigners" in Uganda who bring in such unheard of style of organised crime.

Secondly, it seems to me that the issue is more embedded in the fact that the world economic recession has started to bite Ugandans who had hitherto thought everything would just run swimmingly along; I am thinking of those with the "means" at their disposal.

What is happening to my beloved country Uganda, how can any one kill such an innocent girl just because his parents have failed to raise the ransom that they are demanding for, this kind of impunity must be fought with an equal force.

I wish we could bring back operation wembley.

The question that nobody has addressed is the reason for the kidnap, was it business rivalry, family disputes, failed relationships or it was purely greed for money on the part of the kidnappers.

I carefully listened to the voice of the kidnappers, obviously his accent betrayed him to the born marrow.

He sounded like a primitive fellow who may have been watching lots of movies in the recent times. I also sensed that his accent was fake, yes he may be a Munyankole but the accent was exaggerated.

This is the "peace" the museveni government claims to have given Uganda.

I wonder why the IGP and his line minister not take responsibility and resign?
