Police in Kampala are hunting for Maria Namuga, a wife to a top city tycoon only identified as Godfrey who fled to the United States of America under unclear circumstances.
Some reports allege that Godfrey fled the country after evading a triple tax charge which was allegedly imposed to him by the tax body.
Namuga was wanted by Police to provide information about the whereabouts of her hubby but she also fled. Police sources said that Namuga was unearthed from her hideout by two detectives (names withheld for security reasons) last week following a tip off from the locals who spotted her as she was going to fetch water few weeks ago.
Sources intimated to us that she had just been in the country only a few weeks after arriving from Kenya where she had secretly taken asylum to dodge the Ugandan authorities who wanted to interrogate her about the husband’s disappearance from the country.
Shockingly, Namuga after arrest allegedly escaped from Police custody two days ago and since then, a manhunt for her kicked off. The police officer only identified as Kasozi in whose custody she escaped has also been terminated and arrested pending further investigation, a source said.
“Anyone who knows the whereabouts of this suspect is asked to inform a nearby police station or local’s authorities,” a senior police cop was overheard stating.
