The family of Brina Nalule, the latest kidnap victim has pleaded with government to find the killers of their daughter. The 22-year-Old Nalule was kidnapped from the Old Taxi Park in Kampala on Sunday while on her way to YWCA campus, in Buwambo.
Her uncle, Ssalongo Sunday, a resident of Nakibizzi village in Buikwe district, says upon her arrival in the taxi park, an unidentified person called her for a meeting. Sunday says he started receiving phone calls from unidentified people on Sunday night, saying they had taken Nalule and demanded for a ransom of 10 million Shillings.
According to Sunday, the kidnappers allowed him to speak to her niece who spoke with a lot of fear describing how she had been tied with ropes.

According to Sunday, he got scared and wondered how the kidnappers knew that he had involved the police raising suspicion that the kidnappers could be trailing him. Sunday says he received another call from the kidnappers asking him to organise a funeral for his niece, adding that he tried to bargain with the kidnappers to pay them a ransom of Shillings 5 million in vain.

Nalule's body will be laid to rest at Bugerere in Kayunga district later today. Nalule is not the first victim to lose her life to kidnappers. On February 7, 2018, unidentified people kidnapped 28-year-old Suzan Magara and demanded a ransom of 700 million Shillings from her family in exchange for her life.
Despite receiving the ransom from Magara's family, the kidnappers killed her and dumped her body in Kigo, along the Southern bypass.
Police have since picked up several people including the lawyer of Magara's family in connection to the kidnap and her death. The suspects are yet to appear in court.
