A 33-year-old man in Kanungu has been arrested on allegations of assaulting his own 63-year-old father to death.
The suspect, Byamukama Vianne is said to have murdered his farther Kasuka Gabriel of Rurama cell Kihanda sub county in Kanungu district.
Elly Maate, the Kigezi region police spokesperson says the incident occurred on Sunday evening 4th July 2021 at around 9pm at the home of the suspect and the case was reported at Kirima Police post.
The suspect, who is a biological son to the deceased, reportedly came back home drunk at around 8pm and started beating his wife Namanya Adera, without any reason.
