Greenhill School Buwaate campus is in search of one its pupils who was reportedly abducted from school by a lady who claimed to have gone to pick her from school.
The missing pupil whose name is Nicole Mitala, aged six, went missing from school at 5pm, as a one Amina signed for her. This woman duped the school authorities when she claimed that the father of the child had designated her to pick the girl. However, school authorities without verification released the child to her and since then, the whereabouts of the little girl are not known.
Ruhinda North legislator Thomas Tayebwa who is related to the father of the girl posted on his Facebook wall asking well-wishers to help join the search.
“A niece to my brother Simeon Munywevu of Crane Engravers was kidnapped from her school yesterday evening. Preliminary reports show someone in the names of Amina signed for her. Her colleagues say that same lady appeared at the school on Monday and told the kid that from the next day she has been assigned by dad to be picking her. Searches are still going on & as I type this message the parents are still going thru the grueling pain of not knowing where their daughter is. This pain is too much. Let’s pray for them but also share this picture with whoever we can” reads the post from Mr Tayebwa.
Previously, the school has been in the spotlight for having unauthorized literature in its library and this prompted the Ethics and Integrity State Minister Fr. Simon Lokodo and Ministry of Education officials to ask the school authorities to streamline the contents of their library material.
