“The money has come. Do not send more. Since you have decided to work with the Police, go to the mortuary at Mulago and pick your body,” the kidnappers said.

“The money has come. Do not send more. Since you have decided to work with the Police, go to the mortuary at Mulago and pick your body,” the kidnappers said.

She left home going for prayers at Synagogue Church of All Nations of Pastor Samuel Kakande on Thursday. The church is found near Mulago Hospital, Kampala.

The next her family heard about her was when strange people called them using her number to say they were holding her and wanted a ransom of sh5m or they would kill her.

That was the tragic end of Charity Genius Kyohairwe, 33.



According to her mother, Grace Muhwezi, the kidnappers, describing themselves as Super Killers called her at 5:00am and she could hear wails from her daughter.

After the kidnappers mentioned the ransom money, the family started looking for it. And by the next day, they had collected sh4.5m. However, on the advice of the Police at Katwe, who had assured them they were closing in on the kidnappers, they sent only sh2.5m.

They sent the money to a telephone number they had been given, which is in the names of Kasifa Nyakaisiki.

However, when the family members called to confirm that the kidnappers had received the money, they confirmed they had got it, but told them not to send the balance, but to pick their body from Mulago hospital mortuary.
