Two children who went missing from their home in Naluvule village in Wakiso district on May 18 have been found dead. The dead are 3-year-old Dorcus Nakiwungu and her 6-year-old brother Israel Namalango.
Charles Katende, the father of the two children, says he reported the disappearance of his son on May 19 thinking that they could have been kidnapped as the case has been in different parts of the country.
He explains that the family members advised him to keep his phone on and wait for the 'kidnappers' to call. He however, says to their despair, one of their workers found the bodies on the minors lying in a trench in a swamp adjacent to an eucalyptus plantation.
Katende says he has had a rough experience since he settled in the area, adding that he has lost a number of livestock, poultry and property to unknown people.
Initially, there were claims that some of the body parts of the minors were missing. But Luke Owoyesigyire, the Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, has refuted the claims saying the postmortem report shows that the bodies were intact.
Owoyesigyire says they have commenced investigations to establish the circumstances surrounding the minors death.
