Police in Kyankwanzi is hunting for a man identified by one name called Emmanuel, following unconceivable murders he committed on 30th June at around 10 am at Kagarama Lc1 Butemba Town Council in Kyankwanzi District.
A team of police officers responded to the scenes following a phone call from one of the residents who informed them that Emmanuel armed with a panga had attacked a home of Kalfred Mushabe and cut people without any known reason who later ran for their dear lives.
As they ran away, Emmanuel cut a baby identified as Tayebwa Joel aged only 4 years, son to Kalfred Mushabe.
Emmanuel proceeded to another home of workers at a maize plantation and threatened to cut the women whom he found working at the plantation.
Unfortunately as the women ran away, Emmanuel cut dead two more kids, namely Nakisindi Nora F/j aged 3 years, and Ninsiima Joel M/j aged 9 months.
As the survivors were making an alarm the killer disappeared into a big maize plantation where police and the community are vigorously pursuing him.
Emmanuel had come to that village and hired land from one of the residents Kalfred Mushabe where he has been cultivating his maize and also staying alone in his makeshift house (Manyatta).
According to the residents of Kagarama, they are still puzzled as to why this gruesome murder was done, because there has not been any known conflict between Emmanuel and the victims, neither do they know him to be a person living with insanity.
Post-mortem has been done at the scene, and more than 8 other people who were badly injured by Emmanuel have been taken to Butemba health centre 3, and others referred to Hoima General Hospital for proper treatment.
“We extended our condolences to the grieved families and pledge to pursue this killer and arraign him to Court for prosecution,” said ASP Twiine Charles Mansio, CID spokesperson.
He identified the suspect as Twagirayezu Emmanuel, a Rwandese by nationality as per the document of registration (indingamuntu) from the area chairman of Kagarama.
