Teen kills father over money

28 May 2015, 15:31 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Police in Kampala are hunting for a 19-year-old man who reportedly killed his 75-year-old father after learning that he had just withdrawn money from the bank.

Police have identified the man they are hunting as Denis Munezero, and his father as James Kizza.

Kizza was a landlord with several rental houses located next to his house. Wednesday morning he went to the bank to withdraw money to use in the construction of another house.

It is the tenants of Kizza who suspected that Munezero had killed his father when they saw him coming out of the house dressed in the old man's clothes and pushing the keys under the door after locking it.

A neighbor to the old man, Ali Kaga said, ''When we saw him in his father's clothes, we suspected that something was amiss. We gathered at the door to Kizza's house and called him several times. When he failed to respond, we broke into the house only to find him killed.''

Ali said they found the body of Kizza with several wounds. The machete used to hack him was just next to the body. Muzenero's clothes that were draped with blood were also near the body.

One of the workers at Kizza's new house said that before the killer committed the offense, he first inquired from some of them if his father had withdrawn money from the bank. On ascertaining that the old man had money, he went on to kill him.

Police were informed about the murder and went to collect the body.

The police officer in charge of criminal investigations department at Kabalagala police station, Nusurah Kemigisha said they are hunting for Munezero.

According to Kizza's neighbors, Munezero dropped out of school to join a group of delinquents who smoke opium and was no longer staying at home.
