A young man is in police custody in Kasese district for killing his mother for denying him Shillings 200 to buy a cigarette.  The suspect is Mbusa Minadabu, a resident of Kinyamaseke Store cell in Kinyamaseke Town Council in Kasese District.  

Minadabu reportedly strangled his 71-year-old mother, Jane Biira on Friday night for refusing to give him Shillings 200 to buy a cigarette. It is alleged that Minadabu arrived home around 9:00pm and found his mother and ground son having supper. 

According to the minor, the suspect demanded for Shillings 200, which his mother didn’t have. This infuriated the suspect forcing his mother to abandon the supper and retreat to her bedroom. 

Minadabu reportedly forced out the minor before he followed his mother in the bedroom. The minor explains that when he returned to the house, he tried to wake up his grandmother in vain.
