“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.” Twiine stated.
He adds that immediately the peope ran, Emmanuel cut a baby identified as Tayebwa Joel aged only 4years son to Kalfred Mushabe. He then 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 then cut dead two more kids, namely Nakisindi Nora F/j aged 3years, and Ninsiima Joel M/j aged 9 months.”Twiine further said adding that 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)
