An upcoming Ugandan singer reportedly handed himself to the authorities in Amolatar District, Northern Uganda on Tuesday, June 27, after police arrested his three friends in connection with his wife’s murder.
The little known musician, Ronald Okao started his music career in 2016 and his attempt to gain fame seemingly hit a snag prompting him to consult a witch doctor in Cakwara village.
After their arrest (Okao’s friends), we interrogated them and they told us that Okao killed his pregnant wife on instructions of a witchdoctor who promised him fame and success in the music industry.
The musican’s expectant wife, Winnie Ajwang, was deep asleep when his husband returned home from the magician on the night of Thursday, June 21, and slashed her to death.
The alleged killer then chopped her body parts before he carried the body on a motorcycle and dumped it along the road. Residents discovered the body soaked in blood and followed traces of blood leading to the couple’s house, prompting a search for Okao who had fled. The alleged 26-year-old killer had been living with his 19-year-old wife for two years.
Amolatar Central Police Station Commander Marsna Okello Ochan confirmed they were still hunting for the said witch doctor. “Our inquiry is still on. We have so far arrested four young men in relation to the murder of this young woman. We are charging them with murder. Their files are ready and will be paraded before court anytime because we cannot keep them here,” said Okello.
