Kasese Son Nearly Kills Own Mother
Masereka Raymon of Kasambya parish in Kasese, nearly killed his mother yesterday afternoon when he hit her on the forehead with the family pestle – the stick used for pounding grains.
Surprisingly, the fight resulted from a disagreement the young man had with his sister over a pair of slippers. In short order, it escalated to life threatening status. At one point, Masereka is reported have been brandishing a hoe, baying for the blood of all the family members. It took a group of neighbours to apprehend and drag him to local police station.
Residents suspect that Masereka might be insane.
