The Joint Task Team from the Police and Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) investigating the double kidnap and murders of Maria Nagirinya and Ronald Kitayimbwa, have finally tracked down and arrested the prime suspect alleged to be the plot maker.

Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga says the suspect whose particulars cannot be availed at this stage, worked closely with Kasolo Kopriano aka Arsenal, who was the team leader. “We are now working hard to corroborate and consolidate his information, to the facts on file. And further establish the clear motivation to the kidnap and murder,” he says.

The arrest now brings to five, the total number of suspects involved in the violent criminal act committed two months ago. “We are, however, still hunting for two other bodaboda riders; one who facilitated the process by transporting the suspects, to the scene of kidnap and it is also believed, rode up to Takajjunge in Mukono, where he allegedly surveilled the murder scene, before giving a signal to the team leader, Kasolo Kopriano. The other bodaboda on the run, reached the gate to the victim’s home but withdrew immediately,” Enanga explains.

“This arrest sends a strong message to all violent criminals, that you cannot hide, you are not beyond reach. However, much you hide, we will find you and bring you to justice,” he added. Nagirinya, an Assistant Project Officer at CID, a Nongovernmental Organization based in Muyenga, Kampala was in August together with her driver kidnapped from her home gate in Lungujja and later founded murdered at a swamp in Mukono district.
