According to the church, the vehicle was in the parking on the day Twinamatsiko claimed kidnapped.

Police continued with the hunt and traced her phone until they found her hiding at her boyfriend hostel in kirinya on September/15/2019 and the police arrested her and the boyfriend.

During the police interrogation, they found out that she had faked her own kidnap because her parents had refused to give her money for the hostel.
