Two brothers who ran to save their mother from the hands of their violent elder brother are in custody after they assaulted their elder brother who later succumbed to his injuries. In the incident which occurred in Elukhongo, Butula sub-county.
The deceased had allegedly returned home at 8 pm drunk and demanded food from their mother. However, the mother asked him to be patient because the food was not ready, but the 32-year-old son was too hungry to listen. He instead descended on her with blows and kicks hence a cry for help that saw her two other sons, Pascaliano Odhiambo 29 and Bonaventure Ouma 19 come to her aid. They gave him a dog’s beating before they retired to bed. Despite being assaulted by Juma, the mother woke up early today and went to check upon him. She was however shocked to find his lifeless body on the doorstep of his house, with a deep cut on his head, slightly above the left ear.
She immediately alerted the local authorities who called in officers. A machete, jembe, and a rungu believed to be the murder weapons were found at the scene of the murder, documented and collected by the Busia-based officers.
