Single mother of five’s kidney ‘stolen’ in Saudi Arabia

While working in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, a Ugandan woman’s kidney was allegedly “taken” under mysterious circumstances.


Judith Nakintu, a single mother of five who had divorced her husband, was hired as a housemaid in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, by Nile Treasure Gate Company, situated in Kiwatule, a Ugandan city suburb, in 2019.

On December 12, 2019, she arrived in Jeddah. Her family was notified two months after she had departed that she had been involved in an accident, but no additional information were provided.

Robert Kadichi, her younger brother, stated she was speaking with her family until she remained silent.

The family received word that she was in critical condition on March 17, 2020. They attempted to contact her supervisor and request that he send them photos of her, but he reportedly blocked them.

There was no word about Nakintu’s condition for a while, until the family received a call from Nile Treasure Gate Company on October 30, 2021, informing them that Nakintu would be arriving at Entebbe International Airport.

She was transported to Mulago National Referral Hospital for a medical check-up after landing in Uganda. They discovered she had undergone a “strange surgery” in Jeddah and that her right kidney had been removed in Mulago.

When they met her, Kadichi stated her left side was paralyzed and she couldn’t communicate clearly, despite the fact that she recognized them. It was also claimed that medical letters from Jeddah detailing her illness exist, but that they are conflicting.

Nakintu alleged in an interview that she was escorted to the hospital by her boss, who claimed she needed to be vaccinated against COVID-19. She was injected there and lost consciousness, which she eventually regained.

The single mother claimed she had no idea what had happened to her, but that she had some mysterious scars.
