Uganda: ‘He Wanted Some Time Alone,’ Mao’s Son Found


Nicholas Mao, a son to Democratic Party president Norbert Mao, who went missing on Monday has been found.

“The hours of frantic search (some of which were blind alleys) have paid off. We have found Nico! I give the highest form of praise one can give the living God. Nico is well. The time was 55 minutes past midnight,” Mr Mao said in a Facebook post Thursday Morning.

On Wednesday, police launched a hunt for the 19-year-old.

The Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, Patrick Onyango, said Nicholas left his father’s home on Monday and never returned.

Nicholas was student of Vienna College. Police also asked Nicholas to show up to his immediate family if he was hiding somewhere intentionally.

His father revealed that Nicholas was found at a cousin’s place and needed alone time.

Nobert Mao’s post on Facebook

Hallelujah! The hours of frantic search (some of which were blind alleys) have paid off. We have found Nico! I give the highest form of praise one can give the Living God. Nico is well. The time was 55 minutes past midnight. We found him asleep. His guitar leaning on the wall. His host (a cousin) said he wanted some time alone to reflect. I let him sleep. No fuss. There will be time to talk. I wrote him a letter which he will read when he wakes up. His cousin said he had written a note he wanted dropped at home to let us know that he was fine. But alas the heavy downpour frustrated his plans.

How I wish I could embrace all those whose outpourings of prayer, love and encouragement kept me from imagining and believing the worst. Your calls and messages kept our spirits high. Concerned people from all walks of life in Uganda and abroad offered support. I especially thank our friends for keeping us from the abyss of despair. Indeed friends are relatives you choose. We may not be related by blood but we are related by love. May God bless you all abundantly.
