Police has released the Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) footage that captured men believed to have kidnapped and killed Maria Nagirinya, a social worker with Community Integrated Development Initiative (CIDI) and her driver, Ronald Kitayimbwa. 

The duo was kidnapped last month on August 28 outside Nagirinya’s gate in Lungujja in Rubaga Division in Kampala at around 11 pm.  The lifeless bodies were found dumped in a swamp in Nama sub county in Mukono district three days after.

Deputy Police spokesperson, Polly Namaye released the CCTV footage today Wednesday showing Nagirinya’s car reg. no UBA 570V being chauffeured by the alleged kidnappers. 

“The images have been retrieved from an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) camera and one can clearly see from these pictures that the assailant is wearing a white shirt, a reddish coat and a cap on his head. He is of a dark skin complexion,” Namaye said while releasing the footage.   

Adding that, “This is, therefore, to appeal to members of the public and to any other person(s) who have useful information leading to the arrest of this suspect in the pictures to contact the nearest police station or call the telephone numbers provided,” Namaye said. 

How it happened  

On the fateful day, Nagirinya had earlier been awarded a certificate alongside 65 other workers after completing a three-day workshop. She reportedly spent more than three hours at her friend’s home, Sylvia Nakayenga alias Mama Vianney in Nsambya. 

They later drove home with Kitayimbwa and were kidnapped while trying to drive through the main gate in the presence of Nagirinya’s sister, a one Benna who had opened the gate. Police detectives interrogated her husband to understand whether she had previously complained about any death threats.

Aged 28, Nagirinya had spent a year in her marriage and was a daughter to renowned businessman Francis Lubowa in Nsambya. Lubowa is also a brother to the former Buganda kingdom minister Dr Ben Mukwaya, the proprietor of Mukwaya general hospital along Ggaba road.

Surely; there has to be an advanced forensic technology in the world tthat can sharpen and make this image clearer.

Even as it is; this guy is easily identifiable by people who know him.

This sort of kidnap, grab or arrest is typical of what is going on around this African city.

The country of Buganda presently seems to be ruled by unpronounced Emergency and Curfew rules.

Let the police impress the services of an artist to make a sketch of what the face may look like. It can be useful too.

Yet again this is a maniac from the so called people power led by an illiterate lunatic with no ideology whatsoever.

These loons must be annihilated before they take more lives.
