Father Held For Beating Son to Death

Jinja Police are holding a father accused of assaulting his son to death. 

The suspect is Yazid Kakoza, a resident of Kabi village in Buwenge Sub County in Jinja district.  

He is wanted for assaulting his 16-year-old son, Ashiraf Nsereko to death. Kakoza is locked up at Buwenge police station. 

It is alleged that kakoza descended on the minor and started canned him to death on Wednesday night following his suspension from Buwenge secondary school. 

He reportedly took the body to a nearby clinic in an attempt to conceal the death.

However, the suspect’s daughter informed police what had transpired leading to his arrest. The deceased's mother, Hamidah Nandego, says she warned Kakoza to stop caning Nsereko in vain.

"I saw my son bleeding profusely and stopped Kakoza from caning him any further but he resisted," she said. 

The Buwenge Division Police Commander, Henry Mugarura told URN that Kakoza will be charged with murder.

 "We are making the necessary inquiries. Kakoza will be prosecuted for murder," he said. 

The deceased’s body has been taken to Jinja Regional Referral Hospital mortuary for postmortem.
