Kampala - Police in the southern Uganda district of Lweno are holding a 40 year old man who mercilessly raped his 67 year old mother.
Two of his brothers who attempted to cut short his adventure got his wrath when he butchered them to death with a machete.
According to police, the arrested man has been identified as Simon Mushabe. The two brothers he killed are Hussein Semakula and Sande Kankunda.
The mother only identified as Namukadde reportedly sounded an alarm immediately Mushabe started raping her.
The two brothers who live near her home ran to the scene to save their mother only to be killed by Mushabe using a sharp machete.
After killing the brothers, he resumed raping the mother until when some neighbors came to the rescue of the old woman.
Southern region police spokesperson Noah Seruunjogi was stunned by the events.
" Mushabe was armed with a machete when he raped his mother. When the mother sounded an alarm, his brothers tried to save their mother but he cut them to death," he said.
Serunjogi added that it is likely that Mushabe did whatever he did under the influence of marijuana.
When we arrested him we found marijuana in his pockets. We got information that he used to smoke marijuana," said Serunjogi.
One of the neighbours who saved Namukadde, Andrew Mukungu was also shocked by the events.
" A kid who saw Mushabe killing his brothers ran to neighboring homes and informed people about it. We went in a group and when he saw us he jumped off his mother and fled into a latrine and locked himself inside. We informed the police and he was arrested from there."
