Saturday September 14, 2019


A 10-year-old boy who was reportedly kidnapped in Lwengo District in central Uganda last month has been found dead.
Police said the decomposing body of Deus Nyebaza, the son of Mr Venasio Mutambuka, a resident of Kibimba B village in Kyazanga Sub County in Lwengo District was found by residents after several days of relentless search before they reported to authorities.
Nyebaza disappeared on August 29 before his kidnappers started demanding for Shs 4.6 million ransom from his parents.
His body was found dumped in Wanyondo swamp in Kyazanga Sub County after his parents failed to raise the ransom.
Police said the kidnapers had been communicating with the victim’s parents through telephone calls and leaflets which they would dump at their house.
