Man Scalds 85 Year Old Mother Over Land

Police in Ibanda are hunting for a 62 year old resident of Rwengorogoro, purchase Rukiri sub-county, for pouring hot water on the face to his mother Aminah Nyinamatsiko aged 85, before running into hiding.

Lawrence Mupenda is said to have committed the act after he failed to obtain Shs. 15million from his mother who had just sold a piece of land.

Agnes Tumuhairwe who bought the land from the old woman says the suspect went to his mother’s home after receiving information that she had sold her land, and tasked her to give him money to start his own business.

When she declined, Mupenda reportedly told her that she would not wake up in the morning.

A few hours later in the night, he appeared with hot water and poured it in her face, and proceeded to beat her.

Her cry woke up the neighbors and the assailant fled.

Speaking to Chimpreports, Nyinamatsiko revealed that she gave her son enough land which he sold it. She says she sold her remaining piece to relocate and live somewhere else without him.

The DPC Ibanda police station Denis Ochama says the hunt is on for the suspect.
