What started off as an act of kindness, ended up stirring trouble for a woman who went out to declare the lost and found children.
Nalwadda Sharifa, wife to Kassim Yawe the LC I chairman Busia zone in Wandegeya narrowly survived death in Nsambya West zone where she had taken a lost and found child.
6-year-old Olga Nabukenya and 4-year-old Joseph Akram were found abandoned by Abdul Sekamanya near the Salvation Army offices in Wandegeya and brought to the LC1 Chairman.
The Chairman says as an act of kindness, she asked her wife to trace the children's parents in Nsambya.

Cue out: ...police."//
Speaking to Uganda Radio Network in Wandegeya, Nalwadda who is now on police bond for kidnap said it was by God's mercy that nobody among the charged crowd touched her.
Nalwada says this was not the first time they were recovering children and taking trouble to find their parents, but the way the people and Nabukenya's parents reacted shocked her.
Nalwadda together with Kassim Yawe were arrested and later handed over to Katwe police station that transferred her to Old Kampala where she was released on police bond.
However, the chairman, Nsambya West zone, Abdul Majwegga blamed Nalwadda for going straight to find the parents without using the LCs of the area.
Regina Nabakooza, an auntie to the two children was convinced Nalwadda had stolen the children.
According to Nabakooza, the children went missing last week on their way from school and since they had been receiving calls from people demanding for a ransom before they could release the children.
Nabakooza explained that they had been to Kiboga and Namawojjolo and while responding to calls one of her sisters had gotten and bad accident and is nursing serious head injuries.
However the mother of the children, Harriet Nantongo declined to speak to the media.
