Bushenyi Police are searching for a priest who has been missing for 10 days.

The Greater Bushenyi Region Police Spokesperson, Martial Tumusiime, says Rev. Nathan Rwankole (68), a resident of Nyabicere St. Kagwa Busshenyi central division in Ishaka Municipality has been incommunicado for the last 10 days and his contacts are off.       

Tumusiime says the priest’s family members reported a case of missing person and Bushenyi Central Police Station since he didn’t tell them he was traveling.   

The priest’s son, Zakaria Rwankole, says his father was in good condition and wasn’t ill when he went missing.

According to Rwankole, they suspect that he could have been kidnapped but none of them has received a call from kidnappers demanding for ransom.   

He says that Rev. Nathan Rwankole had Shillings 600,000 on him at the time he went missing. 

According to Rwankole, what is bothering them is that their father had previously never left home without communicating to any family member.

Cue out:…….ahakanisa kushaba”//       

Steven Karuti, the Bushenyi Central Division LC III Chairperson, says the missing priest was open minded and good at sharing, which worries them further.  

Karuti says the priest was last seen dressed smartly and though that he had gone to visit neighbors as has been his practice but he has been seen since.
