In a Facebook post by Deep Info, Nakiyemba was said to have informed her husband, Moses Nyakana, she was going to visit her parents in the village.
The unsuspecting husband then rang to establish whether she had reached safely but attempts to reach his wife by phone were futile because she blacklisted his calls.
However, Nakiyemba reportedly sent her husband WhatsApp messages and voice notes few days later telling him she had traveled abroad.
In September 2018, Nyakana received a strange call informing him his wife was sick and could be brought back to Uganda, but he did not take the callers seriously as the 31-year-old had left in good health.
Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire said Nyakana received another anonymous call informing him that “Nakiyemba was mentally ill and had committed suicide by jumping through a window of a five storey building”.
It was reported that the woman died on September 4, 2018, and her body was repatriated 20 days later before it was taken to City Mortuary for post mortem.
“Post mortem report confirms that two of the deceased’s kidneys had been removed, a condition that may have resulted into her sudden death,” Owoyesigyire added.
