TV personality/producer and lawyer, Justine Nameere, claims army men kidnapped her man on Tuesday morning.
She identified the lead kidnapper as Ruhinda Richard Nganwa who reportedly works in “some army office at Mawanda Road” in Kamwokya.
Ruhinda reportedly works for former Wembley Squad boss Maj Roland Kakooza Mutale.
“…they kidnapped my children’s father and my business partner on gun point this morning at around 9am in Najeera. Four armed men in layer [sic for civilian clothing] left the public in fear when they got my children’s father, while he was buying some groceries to drop them home and put him on gun point and they pushed him into their car.”
She described the car as “a black kibina UAV 259E)”. It took her man, Raymond Kayimba, who also worked at Vision Group, to the office on Mawanda Road where he was asked to “sort a certain matter”.
“Our other business partner went there and he even gave them the Civil Suit of the case and inquired as to how Army officers claiming to work under Kakooza Mutale get into a matter before Civil Court.”
She went on: “They told the business partner that he’s also detained. I had a class test in the morning so I got to know after 12 pm when I got out and returned the many missed calls I found.”
When Nameere called her husband, his business partner picked and told her Ruhinda [the kidnapper] and his men wanted Shs10 million to release him.
“He said ‘if you don’t have it, Honourable can easily afford it (referring to Vincent Bamulangaki Ssempijja, Kalungu East MP)’.”
She reported to police which sent some officers to inquire on the matter.
Apparently, the soldiers got angry and threatened to deal with the concerned parties.
“Afande Tumwine, Afande Ochola and Afande Sabiiti you promised to deal with this rot in the forces. We await on your help! I can never keep quiet on injustice! Never!” she cried out.
When asked on the matter, Police Spokesperson Emilian Kayima, advised Nameere to report to police and let the force handle the matter.
But Nameere says after she exposed the soldiers on Facebook, they panicked to the point of calling a “press conference” to “explain themselves”.
They then took Nameere’s husband and his colleagues to police.
Kayima promised to reach out to Nameere and follow up on her case.
Nameere, formerly a host of Life Stories TV show on NTV Uganda and former Co-host (tv show) at minibuzzuganda, is now a TV presenter on Urban TV’s Life and People TV show.
