Missing Ugandan 'groom' found hiding in friend's house to avoid wedding bills

Tumwebaze has been handed to the family so that they can proceed with wedding preparations.

Phillip Tumwebaze went missing on February 17 sparking fears that he could have been kidnapped.

Tumwebaze's family reported the disappearance case at Kisoota Police Station saying he was last seen headed to a nearby shop to buy airtime to mobilise friends to attend his wedding meeting.

The officers however found the missing "groom" at his friend’s house, having tracked him through the help of close friends.

“We found the man on Saturday evening staying with a friend in Ndejje. The man had no signs of being kidnapped,” Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigire said.

Lack of wedding funds

A Facebook post by Kasoma Benard Juma claimed that Tumwebaze may have gone into hiding due to lack of wedding funds.

Juma, who appears to have schooled together with Tumwebaze at St. Mary's Kitende, instead urged the school's alumni to contribute towards his wedding slated for Saturday, 3rd March 2018.

Police have since handed Tumwebaze to the family so that they can proceed with wedding preparations.
