Police in Kampala are searching for a 24-year-old woman who vanished two days to her wedding ceremony.
Bushura Najjuko, a resident of Katereke Cell in the Kyengera Town Council, Wakiso District, was reported missing by her mother, Aisha Nalukenge.
According to the mother, Bushura vanished on March 10, 2023, at 9 am, while en route to a bridal makeup salon in Nakivubo, Kampala.
Luke Owoyesigyire, the deputy spokesperson for Kampala Metropolitan police said that;
“Najjuko was preparing for her upcoming marriage ceremony, which was scheduled for Sunday, March 12, 2023. While at Nakivubo, Najjuko reportedly handed over her changing dresses to Ali Kivumbi, a boda-boda rider, to take home. She informed him that she would follow later but never showed up, raising concerns about her whereabouts.”
Owoyesigyire stated that the police is conducting operations to locate her.
“The make shop owner (Shafuras Bride Make-up Shop in Nakivubo) whom we believe was the last person seen with her confirms that they parted ways at the New Taxi Park since they were heading in different directions,” he said.
Police suspect that she might have run away after being forced to marry a man she didn’t love.
Najjuko was supposed to marry a one Faruk Mugalu, a resident of Kagoma.
