Court in Kampala on Tuesday convicted a 23-year-old woman for faking own kidnap in a bizarre attempt to test her husband’s love.
Aminah Mirembe, a resident of Nakawa, a Kampala suburb appeared at City Hall Court where the magistrate ordered her to pay a fine of Sh 300,000 be imprisoned for one year if she defaulted.
Prosecution stated that Mirembe on May 26, 2018 at Ntinda in Kampala gave a police officer C/ASP Moses Acaye false information that she had been kidnapped and her abductors were demanding ransom of Shs 500,000.
Prosecution further contended that the Mr Acayo devoted his precious time and state resources to investigate the bogus kidnap.
This comes just hours after court in Kayunga convicted Rebecca Birabwa, 32 and sentenced her to six-months over similar charges.
