The other victims are Joseph Mugume, the manager of a beer depot in Kagadi and Rashid Edema, a security guard who were kidnapped in Kagadi on the night of October 24.

They were kidnapped by unknown thugs who raided the beer depot, disarmed the guard and then bundled them into a vehicle and sped off to an unknown destination. 

The thugs reportedly robbed 15 million shillings from the depot. Detectives found bloodstains and bullet cartridge at the place where the depot manager is believed to have been captured by the thugs.   

Hakiza says that no one has contacted their family members demanding for ransom raising suspicion that they could have been killed by their kidnappers.
