According to New Vision, Ronald Twinomugisha, 35, was hacked to death with an axe by yet-to-be-identified criminals on Monday night.

Police found his body in his compound at Busei B Village, Nakalama sub-county in Iganga District, and his house appeared to have been searched by the suspects before leaving the crime scene.

Busoga East Police region spokesperson Diana Nandawula said Twinomugisha's body was found with two deep cut wounds on the head, with the axe discovered "next to the dead body." Police believed that the axe was used to kill the businessman.

Twinomugisha's body was then transported to Iganga Hospital Mortuary at Nakavule for autopsy. Police said one of Twinomugisha's employees notified them about the incident after he failed to answer his calls.

Uganda Police Launched Manhunt For 4 Men Involved in the Murder of Businessman

Police have launched a manhunt for four men suspected to have information about the murder of Ronald Twinomugisha. Nandawula told New Vision Online that the victim recently hired these men to work at his small-scale liquid soap-making factory, but they were nowhere to be found after the tragic incident. 

Waiswa Gozani, the chairperson of Busei B village, said the suspects were believed to have searched the house to retrieve the documents the businessman asked them to provide for employment, including photocopies of national identity cards and passport photos.

"The things in the house, including the documents were disorganized, and we suspect that these workers removed all documents, which the deceased has been asking for before employing them," Gozani told DailyExpress.

Gozani added that Twinomugisha had lived in the area for more than two years. Hamidu Kawanguzi, the Nakalama sub-county LC3 chairperson, expressed sadness over the businessman's death.

"It's on a sad note that we have lost a business person who had come in the area and employed people who turned against him and took his innocent life," Kawanguzi told DailyExpress.

Police said the suspects would be charged with murder once they were arrested.
