Bududa student killed by brother-in-law over PDM cash

A 21-year-old student of Bulucheke secondary school in Bududa district, Andrew Watetera has been hacked to death by his brother-in-law following a quarrel over Parish Development Model (PDM) cash.

The victim was a resident of Bunasaba village in Bumakita parish, Nalwanza sub-county. According to reports, Watetera had paid a visit to his brother-in-law, Samuel Mashetisha over the weekend, when an argument erupted over sharing of the money, they received via PDM. 

Martine Sogoni, an eyewitness recounted that the disagreement escalated into a physical altercation. Despite initially overpowering Mashetisha, Watetera's fortunes quickly turned.

Mashetisha entered the house, grabbed a machete, and mercilessly hacked Watetera on the head, killing him instantly. Attempting to conceal the crime, Mashetisha then took the lifeless body and hanged it from the roof using a rope, attempting to stage it as a suicide. 

Rogers Taitika, Elgon Region police spokesperson, confirmed the incident, saying that a manhunt for Mashetisha is underway. Once apprehended, Mashetisha will face charges of murder. Police transported Watetera's body to Bududa hospital for a postmortem examination. 

Authorities are actively investigating the motive behind the murder, focusing on the alleged dispute over the distribution of the PDM funds.

In other words, motivated by purposes of its selfish political expedience (cheap popularity); the curse of our sweat and blood (tax money), which without our consent, the corrupt regime misappropriates for distribution, is now making the beneficiaries to freak out murder each other.

Otherwise, why fight over what you have not worked for?

That is why it is necessary to program a welfare system that does not only assist the supporters of the ruling political party in this country.

With all the money that has been given out to aliviate poverty, there is enough money for the poor to share equally the available funds.

Look. The poor indeed run this country's economy. They quickly spend their money into the local economy. Their money is not exported abroard in hidden investments!
