CRIME 

A sixty year old-Margret Kabaziguruka, and her two daughters; Doreen Kyampaire,29, and Oliver Kyasimire,20, have been arrested by Kabale Police allegedly for stealing a two months old baby girl.

It is alleged that on 10 September, 2020, under unclear circumstances, Kyasimire, travelled from Lyantonde and headed to Kabale district.

After reaching there, she walked straight to Felix Naturinda, and Doreen Twakyire's home, claiming she had gone to check on them at their home, located in Butorane village, Buhara Sub-County, Kabale district.

However, at around 8pm, Kyasimire, who claimed was going to buy airtime to the nearby shop, disappeared without a trace. 

The couple claims that they waited patiently but all in vain!

"We learnt that our baby had been stolen and taken to Lyantonde, when we inquired from our neighbour who knew the culprits," said the parents.

"We reported the matter to the area local Council Chairman, James Sudan, who helped us trace for our baby and the perpetrators," they added.

Two days later, police swung into action and travelled to Lyantonde where the baby was recovered alive together with her perpetrators.

The Kigezi Regional Police Spokesperson, Elly Maate said three suspects are already in their custody to help with investigations.

"Inquiries are underway to establish the motives behind the trios action before we take another course of action," said Maate.
