Ugandan admits killing Pinay receptionist in Abu Dhabi


A Ugandan suspect has admitted killing a Filipina receptionist who has been missing since March. 

The Filipina, identified as Mary Anne Daynolo, was missing since March and was recently found dead according to the Department of Labor Employment (DOLE). She was reportedly stabbed on the neck by a Ugandan suspect. 

The remains of the receptionist had already been repatriated back to the country, Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III confirmed. 

Meanwhile, the National Bureau of Investigation will conduct a thorough autopsy on the body as requested by the OFW’s family. 

The remains were found in January this year after a Ugandan national admitted killing her. “Itong January lang, may nakitang advanced stage of decomposition na labi ng isang tao na sa tingin nila ay labi ni Mary Anne Daynolo,” Bello said. 

“Mabuti naman sa pagsisiyasat ng mga police authorities sa Abu Dhabi ay natunton nila itong isang Ugandan at siguro dahil sa masusing pag-iimbestiga ng police authorities doon, napaamin nila itong Ugandan na to at inamin niya na pinatay niya si Mary Anne sa pamamagitan ng pagtusok sa kanyang leeg ng isang kutsilyo,” he added. 

Bello said that the Filipina went missing from her workplace on March 4, 2020. 

“Justice must be given to Mary Anne and to the parents of Mary Anne,” the labor secretary further added. 

Meanwhile, presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said that President Rodrigo Duterte promised to give justice to Daynolo and hold accountable to the person responsible for the OFWs’ death. 

“Ang pangako po ng presidente, mabibigyan po ng hustisya at katarungan ang pagkamatay ng ating kababayan si Marry Anne Daynolo,” he said.
