Makindye Kidnap victims released by captors

Two supporters of the National Unity Platform Party President, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine who were kidnapped in December last year have been released by their captors. 
The duo was released on Sunday night.


The victims who are brothers are identified as Denis Matovu and Richard Sonko. They were kidnapped on December 8th 2020 from Lukuli-Nanganda trading centre in Makindye Division. 


According to their mother Solome Nakibuuka, they were dropped near Lubiri on Sunday around midnight and walked to Makindye, near the Military Barracks to a house of a friend who they knew. It’s the friend who called Nakibuuka around 1AM on Monday morning informing her that her sons had been released. 


Nakibuuka says her sons told her they didn’t know where they were being detained. She said they are fine without giving more details. 


Nakibuuka spent the last eight months searching for her sons at police stations, prisons, courts and to meetings with several soldiers who took her money promising to help.
