Two Fathers Stabbed to Death by Own Sons

John Muwalye, the area village chairperson says that the deceased had earlier indicated to him and a number of village friends that Bwami was not a biological son and that he would not give him any inheritance.
Two fathers have been stabbed to death by their own sons in separate attacks in different parts of the country today.

In the first attack, a 18 year old man Bernard Bwami attacked his father Lawrence Wamanga, 61, and killed him after a domestic brawl. The incident occurred at Lukoba village, Toma parish in Busiu Sub County some 25kilometres south west of Mbale town.

It remains unclear what sparked off the scuffle that led to the tragedy.

However, John Muwalye, the area village chairperson says that the deceased had earlier indicated to him and a number of village friends that Bwami was not a biological son and that he would not give him any inheritance. 

Muwalye says he was this afternoon alerted by neighbors about loud screams arising out of Wamanga's home. But it was too late to rescue him. His body was lying in a pool of blood by the time the neighbors arrived.

Bwami said he was driven by the anger and trauma from the rejection but hastens to add that the outcome was not deliberate. 

Mbale Police Chief Peter Mugabi says investigations are ongoing.

Meanwhile, Police in Lwamata Sub County, Kiboga district is also investigating a domestic scuffle in which a 80 year old man was reportedly hacked to death by his biological son.

Godfrey Tatu, 29, killed his father James Lwasa using a panga and a hoe after a disagreement on land ownership. He also injured his mother Maria Tereza, 60, now in intensive care at kiboga government hospital.

Dameri Disan and Night Kobusinge, elders of Tatu told Uganda Radio Network that their brother was given four acres of land by their father but he kept on demanding for more.
