What you need to know:

  • The deceased was buried in a public cemetery since no one could trace her ancestral home or relations.

No one knew her beyond the name Emily Nyinaneza.  None of her relatives could be identified nor showed up to claim her body. And her nationality was speculated.
This is the mystery surrounding Nyinaneza, a waitress who succumbed to injuries sustained in last Saturday’s explosion at a pork eatery in Komamboga in Kawempe, a Kampala suburb.
Workmates and friends claim she was a Rwandan national, but provide no proof.
She was aged 20 or thereabout.
