Ugandan Maid’s Kidney STOLEN by Employer In Saudi Arabia

A Ugandan woman reportedly lost her kidney in unclear circumstances while working in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

The victim has been identified as Judith Nakintu, 38, a single mother of five who had separated with her husband.
It is alleged that in 2019, Nakintu was recruited by Nile Treasure Gate Company, based in Kiwatule, a city suburb, as a housemaid to work in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
She then flew to Jeddah on December 12, 2019.
Two months after she had left, her family was informed that she was involved in an accident, although no further details were given.
According to her younger brother, Robert Kadichi, at first, she was communicating with her family until she went silent.
However, on March 17, 2020, the family received information that she was in a critical condition.
They tried to reach out to her boss asking him to send them photographs

of her, but he reportedly blocked them.
For some time, there was no information about Nakintu’s condition, until October 30, last year, when they received a call from the Nile Treasure Gate Company that Nakintu would land at Entebbe International Airport.
The family was, however, not allowed to meet her and she was taken to Mulago National Referral Hospital for a medical check-up.
It was at Mulago that they learnt that she underwent a ‘mysterious surgery’ while in Jeddah and that her right kidney was missing.
Kadichi said when they met her, her left side was paralysed and she could not speak well, although she recognised them.
It is further alleged that there are medical letters from Jeddah explaining her condition and they are contradictory.
In an interview, Nakintu said she was taken to the hospital by her boss on the pretext that she was to get vaccinated for Covid-19.
She got injected there and lost consciousness which she later regained after some time. She doesn’t know what happened to her but she noticed she had some unexplained scars on her.
