Details emerge on boyfriend who ‘stole’ from bride after Kukyala, police say he isn’t on the run

Kampala, (UG):- Fresh details and a new twist have emerged in the trending saga concerning the boyfriend who is alleged to have stolen household items and cash from her fiance, just days after the Kukyala ceremony.

The incident reported at Kanyanya Police Station on Saturday, February 03, 2024, involved one Namasere Winnie, aged 25 and a resident of Kyebando Central Zone pinning her boyfriend, Lukyamuzi Timothy, aged 26, of taking her household items without permission.

Despite the initial reports suggesting that Lukyamuzi had ransacked the entire house of his girlfriend’s sister, Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Mr Luke Owoyesigyire has provided an update on the incident refuting the exaggerating reporting.

According to Mr Owoyesigyire, the boyfriend is not on the run as earlier reported, and that, he only mortgaged the TV, whose receipt lists him as the owner.

Investigations carried out by police indicate that at the beginning of this month (February 2024) Winnie left the residence she was staying with her boyfriend due to domestic issues and sought refuge at her sister’s place, Nakasita Evelyn, in Namavundu Gayaza, Wakiso District.

“According to Ms Winnie, on February 3rd, 2024, around 1 PM, she received a call from Mr Timothy informing her that he had relocated their belongings to an undisclosed location following an eviction notice from their landlord. Despite attempts to reach Mr Timothy by phone, he was unreachable, prompting her to report the incident to the police as a case of domestic violence and theft,” Mr Owoyesigyire said in a Friday police statement.

The KMP Deputy Publicist adds that Timothy later voluntarily presented himself to the police and provided his statement, denying any intention of theft.

“He explained that he had transferred the belongings to his sister’s workplace for safekeeping while he searched for alternative housing. Subsequently, the missing items were recovered at his sister’s workplace with the assistance of the police.

Both parties have agreed to separate their belongings temporarily as they work towards resolving their domestic issues amicably.”
