The assailants then removed their tongues. The village chairperson, Mr. Jamil Musoke reported the gruesome murder to Ngogwe police and they have since opened an investigation.
Authorities identified the deceased as a 20-year-old bodaboda rider named Henry Mukasa and, 50-year-old Charles Enima, both residents of Kitutu village. The Ssezibwa regional police spokesperson, Hellen Butoto identified the men.
Reports also indicate that Mr. Enima met his death after visiting his sister Ms. Maria Agiyo who lives 500 meters away from his home.
‘’After committing the murders, the killers removed their tongues and fled, leaving the victims in a pool of blood,’’ Ms. Butoto said.
She added that the killers murdered Mr. Mukasa after he saw and identified the killers of Mr. Enima, who he had caught red-handed.
‘’He (Mukasa) was later pursued and stabbed in the neck with a machete, before having his hands chopped off,’’ she said.
This is, however, not the first incident of its kind to happen in the area according to Mr. Christopher Sseruyange, a councillor in the area. He said two years ago youths from other areas came to the area with the purpose of killing people.
Similarly, police in Masaka District are hunting for assailants who killed a man on Monday and made away with his head. The assailants broke into the home of John Ssebakiga and decapitated him before making their great escape.
They discovered his body on Tuesday morning lying in a pool of blood. Locals further concluded it was probably a sacrifice.
