The younger sister to slain Maria Nagirinya Gateni, who was kidnapped and later murdered by unknown people, has said she fears for her life as well, Bernadette nakidde said that she saw the assailants with her own eyes but it’s the same people that her threatening to take her life.
According to the Nile post, Nakidde, when her sister called for the gate to be opened, she came out only to find the car, a Toyota Spacio UBA570V, reversing with Nagirinya screaming her lungs out: “temuntwala, temuntwala’ (Do not take me).
“They didn’t expect the gate to be opened when it was. They started reversing very fast. I was there banging the car’s bonnet while I screamed for help but no one was coming to our rescue. They reversed quickly,” a teary Nakidde narrates.
“There was a man who was wearing a red jacket and white shirt, he had big eyes and some beards. I looked at him and he also looked at me. I am not sure he kept my face, I don’t know how safe I am. I am so scared of my life.”
Nagirinya was snatched from outside her residence while she waited for Nakidde to open the gate. Police earlier maintained that they had spotted her car around Kireka, being driven by a man in a red jacket but later vanished off the CCTV grid.
Nagirinya’s sister Bena Nakyejwe narrated her ordeal on the fateful Wednesday night when Maria was kidnapped and later killed by the perpetrators.
“I heard her while at the back seat of the car, pleading and screaming for mercy. Please don’t take me that is when I got scared and started shivering,” she narrated.
