Kampala: The examination of body samples removed from the corpse of Milly Namazzi has revealed that all the internal organs were intact.
The 26-year old Ugandan woman Milly Namazzi, who went to work in Saudi Arabia but was trafficked to Egypt where she died and her family has been demanding justice in vain.
The body of Namazzi who died on December 5 was delivered to her parents’ home in Kagezi village, Kimaanya sub-county in Masaka district on January 19, 2022, to accord her a decent burial.
Namazzi reportedly died after her relationship with her employer turned sour, since then the family has been struggling to have Namazzi’s body repatriated after Dream Connect Limited, the labor export company that sent her to Saudi Arabia allegedly declined to take part in the arrangements.
Namazzi left Uganda for a domestic job in Saudi Arabia in 2019. She was expected to return home after the expiry of her two years contract. However, she sent audios to relatives saying she had been abducted and taken to Egypt from where she was going to be killed.
After ending her contract, Namazzi demanded to return to Uganda but her employers turned down her request. A bitter relationship between the two parties led her employers to send her to Egypt allegedly with the intention of killing her.
In one of the WhatsApp audios sent out to her relatives, Namazzi revealed that her life was in danger.
“She kept on telling us that her employers were always looking for ways to delay her return,” a relative said.
“I got into trouble and if you do not hear from me again, it might mean I am dead. Right now I am hiding and they are searching for me,” voice note of Milly Namazzi before she died.
The relatives lost contact with her. This forced them to confront Dream Connect Company Limited a labour export firm that had taken her to provide answers. The proprietors were tasked to explain how Namazzi had been smuggled to Egypt yet she left Uganda for Saudi Arabia.
However, John Crispus Wamani, the director of Dream Connect Limited said that the contract between Namazzi and the company had expired after two years. Wamani said that they were no longer obligated to further arrangements between Namazzi and her employer.
After a month, the relatives received information that Namazzi had died in an accident. The relatives received the body and alleged that the kidneys and body parts were missing.
But the police’s medical examination report confirmed that Namazzi was gruesomely murdered and not killed by an accident though her internal organs were intact.
“First, we rule out an accident as the cause of death. This was torture and murder. She was cut with a very sharp object through her private parts up to the placenta. She was left to bleed to death. It was a gruesome murder, not an accident. But her internal organs were removed,” a senior police detective said.
Police’s medical report adds that Namazzi’s private parts were detached from the pelvic region because of the deep cuts. The private parts folded thus appearing like they had been cut off. The report adds that her libs and head were crashed with sticks.
“The Saudi Arabia accident documents were fake. This was not an accident. What killed her was the cutting from her private parts up to the placenta. We believe her body and head were crashed with a stick after she had died purposely to indicate it was an accident,” a detective adds.
Charles Twine, the CID spokesperson, said the Director of Public Prosecution has advised investigators to get a document analyst to investigate the source of documents that accompanied Namazzi’s body.
“The body came with some medical documents showing she was involved in an accident. The DPP has advised us to do further inquiries which we are going to undertake. This may include verifying the authenticity of the documents provided by the suspects,” Twine said.
