19-year-old Robert Olwi aka Tugeza has been arrested in Oyam district over allegations of murdering his own biological mother Sylvia Aol for drinking too much. 

The incident happened in Amwa Teduka Cell in Minakulu town council, Oyam district in the early hours of Wednesday morning when Aol reportedly returned home extremely drunk from a bar.

Filled up with anger, Olwi reportedly pounced on his mother in rage with punches and kicks, accusing her of being a drunkard and a disgrace to the family. She died shortly at the scene.

Jimmy Patrick Okema, the North Kyoga police spokesperson says Olwi has been arrested and detained at Oyam central police station as the file is being compiled for submission to the resident chief state attorney for perusal and advice to be arraigned before the court on charges of murder.

Incidents of murder are on the rise in Lango with at least 10 people being killed in a month with the biggest contributor being direct assault, followed by mob action and domestic violence. Oyam district has been identified as a major contributor to these cases.

What is the matter with these former tribal rulers? Dr Obote used to gulp two bottles of Mateus wine and still be sober enough to govern this country. This kid should have taken her Mum to the government hospital for medical treatment.
