Police in Kampala are hunting for merciless killers who stabbed a business man to death on Monday night as he returned home after a long working day.
The deceased who residents identified as Jack Mulika, was discovered on Tuesday morning lying motionless at the railway crossing in Kireka, one of Kampala suburbs with his severed body in a pool of blood. His car was also nearby.
Traders in Kireka who know him said that Jack has been dealing in poultry feeds, Rice and sugar, supplying them to the local traders in the suburbs.
“We suspect people who murdered him could have been his business rivals because he has been a good man,” a resident told us yesterday.
According to Kirunda, one of the eyewitnesses who was taking his merchandise to the market in Kireka, he found the deceased’s boy at the scene at around 5.30am.
“When I saw a person on the rails, I thought that he was a drunkard because I saw a car parked near him but on drawing closer, i discovered some blood all over the place which made me believe that he was dead. I did not touch him but made an alarm so that other people could converge around. It is after that they gathered that we reported the matter to police,” he said.
The Police later took the body to Mulago Hospital Mortuary after recovering a car number plate UAK 295Q which the deceased is believed to have been driving before he met his death.
Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, Patrick Onyango, revealed that police detectives were unable to identify the deceased because they found him with no identification documents.
“We know that there could have been some people who know his particulars but we shall wait for his family members to establish his real identity,” he said
He added that police were still hunting for the assailants who could have done this heinous act.
