On 21 December, 2018, Lydia Nakimera gave birth to a bouncing baby girl at St. Mary’s Hospital in Manchester in the United Kingdom.
The newly born, Tabitha Kara, named after her dad Kasim Kara was in fine health. She was born normally and all was well. Or rather seemed well.
Not until minutes later when social services stormed the maternity ward and whisked away the newly born baby Kara from her mother, Nakimera.
Five years later, heartbroken Nakimera is still searching for her daughter and is now calling upon government, media and whoever has capacity to help her rescue her daughter from what she describes as ‘captivity and a flawed and illegal adoption process.’

Nakimera describes the United Kingdom (UK) adoption policy as flawed.
She believes due process was not followed in giving her son to a one Teresa O’Flaherty, the adopter.
And indeed, the family court at Manchester ruled that the social services of Manchester City Council lacked evidence in the neccessary measures to prove lack of parental failure.
However, the court said that they should amend in their statements and make the details of the adopter confidential.
Ms Nakimera says ever since her daughter was taken upon her birth in 2018 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Manchester, United Kingdom, her life has been miserable, and she wonders how anyone can be this cruel to deny a child their mother.
She accuses authorities in the UK of not carrying out thorough investigations before taking baby Kara.
She also claims she was not told what her crime was for the baby to be taken away, until later when she found out that her the baby was taken because she did not attend antenatal care services, a claim she furiously denies.
Nakimera says she did antenatal, partly in Uganda and provided supporting documents in court. However, all this fell on deaf ears.
The baby was fraudulently given to the white woman, Teresa, by Manchester City Council in her (Nakimera) absence. She can’t and will never understand why.
Nakimera further accuses Manchester City Council Social Services of conniving with judges in court to deny her, her precious baby. She also claims racism played a part.
However, Manchester social services insists she was negligent and lacked capacity.
Nakimera says she doesn’t know where and how her child is.
She is calling upon the Ugandan government to help reunite her with her bundle of joy.
“They accused me of lack of human capacity. They never did any investigations. I have been hurting since 2018. I need my child back and I’m calling upon the Ugandan government through the Foreign Affairs ministry and mission to engage and help me get back by precious son,” Nakimera told this website.
