Kidnappers cut off Magara’s fingers as she watched and wailed, sent video to her family

“I think every security service was involved. They did what they could but it looks like these people (Kidnappers) were much smarter than them. They couldn’t rescue the life of Susan,” Muganwa said.

“20 days is a long time to wait and 20 days is also a long time for police to find out what is going on. In the end they didn’t find out , only for us to be told that she is dead”.

According to Bernard Kajura, the deceased’s uncle, they received the news of Susan’s death from president Museveni.

“We got the news this (27th February) morning when the president Museveni called the father of the deceased and told us that the girl had been killed,” Kajura said.

Susan Magara, aged 28 was a cashier at Bwendero Diary farm procurement offices located along Kabaka Anjagala road.

Meanwhile, the Uganda police force has announced a hefty bounty amount of Shs 100m to whoever brings the kidnappers to book.
