A young couple in Luweero district is in tears following the theft of their one month and week old baby boy. 

Isaac Kizibwe and Justine Nabakooza say their child Marvin Ssemindi was stolen from their home in Wabusana trading center in Kikyusa Sub County around 9pm on Saturday.

 

According to Nabakooza, she had gone to the market to buy tomatoes for sauce in the trading center while her husband had escorted his sister when the child was stolen. 

Nabakooza says upon her return, she found the child missing from the bed where she had left him prompting her to alert residents and local authorities leading to a search.  

Her husband, Isaac Kizibwe suspects that their child was stolen for ritual sacrifice or sale because they don’t have any issues with other residents.

Robert Wasswa, the LC 1 Chairman Wabusana village, says despite the fact that police was informed in time, the officers arrived past 1am and declined to protect residents to conduct a search in the nearby shrines to clear the suspicion that the child could have been taken there for ritual purposes.

Paul Kangave, the Savannah Regional Police Spokesperson, says they have picked up Nabakooza’s ex-boyfriend for interrogations in connection to the child’s disappearance.

Last year, Kiboga police  rescued a newly born baby who had been stolen from Bishop Ceaser Asili Memorial in Luweero town council. The suspected child thief, Juliet Ndagire was transferred to Luweero Central Police station and charged with child theft.

In February this year, High Court in Luweero sentenced Charles Ayesiga to serve 12 years in jail after pleading guilty for kidnapping twins for ransom at Mabbale village in Luweero town in 2018.    

Section 243 (1) C of the penal code act provides that a person who kidnaps a person with intent to procure a ransom or benefit for the liberation of such a person in danger of being murdered commits an offense and is liable to conviction to suffer death
