Timothy Kizito, a US-based Ugandan businessman who went missing in January this year, has been confirmed to have been killed and buried by the Mafia in an unmarked grave.
Kizito, who was a former director for famous Ugandan drama outfit the Ebonies, disappeared went missing on December 19th, 2021 and since then his whereabouts remained unknown until this week when agents from Federal Investigations Bureau (FBI) confirmed his death.

A renowned videographer and film producer, Kizito was the brain behind the production of The Ebonies ‘Bibawo’ TV series that became famous in the 90s and early 2000s.
His family members reported a case of a missing person at Los Angeles police vide file No. DR#21-9927149 in December and requested anyone with information about where he might be to avail it to them or the police, but their efforts were fruitless.
The worried family members told the police Kizito was last contacted via cell phone on December 19, 2021 and he was due to fly out of LAX but did not make his flight, yet he didn’t communicate with his family members why he had missed the flight.
Since then, all efforts to contact him had been futile and his whereabouts remained unknown until this week when the FBI broke the horrible news to his family.
Kizito was also the proprietor of Bantu Productions, a well established film and music production company in Uganda.
