Ronald Manlanat, 30, a member of the Hacienda Joefred chapter in Barangay Luna, was working in the fields when he was shot in the head with an M16 rifle by still unknown assailants at around 5 a.m on February 22. His murder was the second killing of a union member in Sagay since city chapter chair Flora Gemola was stabbed dead last December. This sugarcane plantation laborer was gunned down in what the National Federation of Sugar Workers claimed was the 21st politically-motivated extrajudicial killing on Negros Island under the Duterte administration.
