KYANKWANZI- The Police in the district of kyankwanzi has already mounted a hunt a man only identified as Emmanuel who on Tuesday morning, June 30th 2020 slaughtered 3 children and injured 8.

The inconceivable murders happened at Kagarama LC1 Butemba Town Council in Kyankwanzi District at around 10am of Tuesday morning.

Twiine Charles Mansio CID PRO told this online publication that Emmanuel, armed with a panga, attacked and murdered 3 children, and injured more than 8 others without a reason.

“We received numerous phone calls alerting us of a man who attacked a home; man slaughtered 3 children and injured 8 others. Our team then rushed to the scene” PRO Twiine told the press.

Mr. Twiine said that scared people took off after Emmanuel cut a baby identified as Joel Tayebwa, 4 years son to Kalfred Mushabe. The tormentor went on to another home of workers at a maize plantation and threatened to cut the women whom he found working there.

“Scared women took off for their dear lives and it was then that Emmanuel slaughtered two more kids including Nakisindi Nora 3years and Ninsiima Joel 9 months. 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.

Twiine said postmortem 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.
