Kampala: The Uganda police have confirmed that Doctor Catherine Agaba, a medic with IHK Hospital who went missing on April 13th, 2019, was murdered and her body was found dumped in a septic tank in Muyenga, a Kampala suburb. This shocking revelation was made by Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Patrick Onyango, who confirmed that the body recovered was indeed Agaba’s. Onyango said the Askari (guard) who had been arrested in Pakwach, led them to the residence where the body been dumped in a septic tank.
Dr Agaba has been missing for several days until her family members reported the matter to police and posted her photos all over social media, begging whoever has information about her whereabouts to let them know. The police last week launched a thorough hunt for her, which has culminated into the recovery of her body. However, prior to that, a USA based doctor identified as Andrew Ntambi, who was Agaba’s boyfriend, had been arrested to help with investigations. It is not yet clear whether he was directly involved in Agaba’s kidnap and murder but the police are still conducting investigations after which they will parade the suspects in court to face the charges.
