“Government said we should register phones to enable authorities crack down on such criminals. We expect Police to reign in on these thugs as soon as possible,” charged Bernard Wamala, a family friend.


A student at St Mark S.S. Namungoona, Namazzi was on Wednesday asked by school authorities to return home for school fees.


A few moments after arriving home, she decided to visit her sister at Kyambogo University until 3pm when the pair parted ways.


Namazzi boarded a taxi near Kyambogo and that was the last time she was seen.


At around 10pm, Maimuna Namatovu telephoned her Kyambogo daughter to find out about the whereabouts of Namazzi.


A few minutes later, it emerged that she had been taken hostage by unknown persons.


The captives sought shs2m from Namatovu before her daughter could be released.


Innocent Namazzi was slain a few hours later and her body, which bore hallmarks of torture, dumped at Kikajjo in Namasuba.


The killers went further to torment Namatovu, seeking another shs500, 000.


Katwe District Police Commander, Ezra Tugume, says investigations into the murder are underway.

Justice for Joan


Ugandans have as well taken to social media platforms to demand justice for Joan Namazzi.


Patrick Okello on Facebook said, “She (Namazzi) could have been a future minister. Surely our security officials should step up their game. Justice for Joan.”


Mirembe Irene charged: “Justice for Joan, what is happening to Uganda, our country is steadily going to the dogs!”


Eric Ochom wondered: “New wave of murders in Kampala? Who are the rogues behind this? RIP Joan.”


Peter Kiweewa: “I personally knew this young girl. Her family is our neighbors. So painful it is because I have seen Joan ever since she was a baby only to be brutally murdered…Justice for Joan.”
