Ugandan woman sentenced for fake abduction

A court in Uganda’s capital, Kampala, has convicted a 23-year-old woman for staging her own kidnapping to test her husband’s love for her, the private Daily Monitor news site reports.

Aminah Mirembe was ordered to pay a fine of $80 (£60) or serve a prison sentence of one year, the new site adds.

The prosecution called for a deterrent sentence, saying that staged kidnappings were on the rise in Uganda.

On Monday, a court sentenced Rebecca Birabwa, 32, to six months in jail after she pleaded guilty to a similar charge, the Daily Monitor reports.
