“He told me he was glad to meet me and wanted us to know each other more. I informed him I was committed and what he was asking could not happen,” she said.

She proceeded to buy supper and by the time she returned, Muyundo was still at the parking lot.

She recalled feeling insecure as he apparently kept staring at her. She then alerted the hotel’s caretaker who walked with her to the car.
