Police were shocked after launching a search for a married woman who claimed she was kidnapped and raped, only to find that she had lied so she could spend the weekend with her new boyfriend.
According to reports, on 7th June 2018, the lady identified as Margret Namukose called her husband, told him that she was scheduled to attend a school meeting at Kasangati in Uganda. However when evening reached, she never returned back home and efforts to reach her through her phone were futile.
The worried husband later received a call from his wife telling him that unknown men had kidnapped, raped her and dumped her in a certain forest.

On 8th June 2018 at around 11:00am she resurfaced and was brought to police by the husband. She allegedly told the police that she had rescued herself and went to a nearby clinic for a check-up. Police went with Namukose to the clinic but there was no record of her visit.
Upon further questioning she confessed that all this time the police were searching for her, she had not been kidnapped, but was enjoying herself in Serena Hotel with her new boyfriend.
Namukose is currently detained at Kira Road Police Station and is to be arraigned before courts of law on charges of giving false information.
