A 50-year-old man in Kisoro has been arrested for having a hand in the death of his 80-year-old mother.
Elly Maate the Kigezi Regional Police Spokesman identifies the suspect as William Tibesigwa, a resident of Rugandu village, in Kirundo Sub County.
He is said to have strangled his mother Furidah Rukamba to death.
Maate says Rukamba’s body was discovered on Sunday morning by her 15-year-old granddaughter in the living room.
The girl alerted the neighbours who called in police who secured the scene and established that the old woman was killed by strangulation.
“We immediately arrested his son to assist in investigation because residents pointed out a previous case of domestic violence in the family” Maate said.
Maate said that police has commenced investigation and a case of murder has been registered at Kisoro police station.
