DNA analysis has allegedly confirmed that the decomposing body retrieved from Francis Onebe's septic tank in Munyonyo is that of his wife Immaculate Asio Onebe, who went missing on January 6 this year. 

Last week, after interrogating security guard Bonny Oriokot, who insisted that Onebe, knew where his wife was, detectives then raided the couple’s home at Kaggwa Rise, Lower Mawanga village, in Munyonyo where a decomposed body was retrieved from a septic tank.

Police drew blood samples from Asio’s daughter, Ivy and results have since turned out positive. Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, confirmed that indeed DNA samples matched Ivy’s blood cells and doubts on whether the body was of Asio have ended.

After DNA confirmation, relatives quickly went to pick the body from Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) morgue at Mulago.

From January 6 when Asio disappeared, Onebe claimed that his wife had been kidnapped by unknown people moving in a Toyota Hiace commonly known as drone. He even presented CCTV footage, claiming that she was waylaid as she returned from a grocery and taken to an unknown destination.

But events took a twist last week when the security guard Oriokot who disappeared a day after Asio vanished, abruptly showed up at the relatively well-off couple’s home. Oriokot was sighted hiding in a pit latrine and was locked inside by the new security guard.

During interrogation, Oriokot insisted that Onebe knew everything regarding the whereabouts of his missing wife. CID summoned Onebe and detectives quickly noticed inconsistencies in his statements and decided to search the home’s septic tank.

Meanwhile, police pathologists have reportedly confirmed that the skull and other body parts that were found in a bag that had been placed on the chest of the body also belonged to the victim Asio.

Earlier reports by police indicated that the bag had a skull and other parts like arms, legs and limbs of a seemingly young female person. Police’s suspicion was that the skulls found in the bag perhaps belonged to the maid who allegedly disappeared a few days before Asio varnished.

“We thought we had picked a full body from the septic tank. But after a critical analysis with the help of a pathologist, we have realised even the parts found in the bag were for Asio. We suspect she was chopped and there were attempts to pile it in the bag,” a detective said.

This is an educated man from the Northern provinces of Uganda who should have confessed his sins as soon as possible together with his security guards.

One understands that these African men are parents as well. Silly indeed to waste the police time when all along the relatives of the deceased were suffering the pain of the loss of their loved ones.

I still have my own reservations about that DNA report, it was done by the same police that is investigating the alleged murder and above all, the contradictions regarding the earlier claim of two bodies leaves a bad taste in the mouth

Please be more specific: From which northern tribe do they (the couple) heil from? We have some 'gandanized northerners' up there too. I am a 'soganized' one.

The body is still available. If the police forensics is deemed not to be trustwothy, his lawyers can resource a confirmation test from other independent expertise in that field of DNA determination / comparision. I see no broblem with that.

Why not? Isn't the testing institution also the prosecuting institution?

Don't you see a possible conflict of interest in that situation, and also with the prevailing general understanding that most of our national insitutions are not "TRUSTWORTHY"?

We have two suspects here, Mr Onebe and the Uganda Police/security.

The criminal record of Ug Police is well documented, that’s not to say that Onebe is an angel at this moment, both parties MUST be watched carefully as investigations proceed.
RIP the deceased.

But WADADA, in the state the body parts were found, probably the officers freaked out and lost concentration!

In other words, who wants to be murder scene forensic investigator? it is a freaky, hair raising and soul numbing task.

We know now that they are of the KUMAM ethnic group. That answers it.
