Uganda Police stated that the body of a woman, which was recovered from a trench in Naguru, Kampala, on September 11 could be that of Jackline Nakabembe, a third year Makerere University student.
Nakabembe, worked for Wefunile Permit Company Limited in Ntinda, Kampala, was last seen leaving her office to go to the field in Nakawa Division on September 8.Police showed them photographs of the body and they were able to identify her through the clothes she was wearing and her face.
However, did not reveal when the body will be exhumed and when DNA tests would be carried out. Mr Bbosa said on the fateful day, he waited for her to return home until late in the night in vain.
“She used to come back at around 7pm or 8pm but on that day, she did not. I called her phones throughout the night but they were all switched off,” he said.
Mr Owoyesigyire the police spokes person said: “We tracked the phones of the deceased. We recorded statements of the people she last talked to.”
They identified some suspects including one who had allegedly threatened to harm her if she did not marry him. Nakabembe was set to graduate with a Degree in Development Economics in February next year. She was also a member of the university netball team.
Luke Owoyesigyire said they are still treating Nakabembe as a missing person until forensic examinations are carried out on the body to confirm whether it is indeed hers.
