Police in Mayuge district has arrested a 30-year-old man for killing of his father.

Godfrey Oli, a resident of Buyugu village in Bukoboli Sub County is accused of beating to death his 70-year-old father, Sande Okoti during a fight over who should have the first taste on a sachet of alcohol.

The Buyugu LC.1 chairperson, Alfred Wanyama confirmed the incident that occurred on Tuesday evening.

The LC chairman said the duo failed to agree on whom should take a first sip of alcohol on the sachet. Wanyama says the deceased and his son have been well known alcoholics in the village.

The Bill initiated by Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze seeks to outlaw sachets of alcohol, among other things, to protect communities from such silly loss of human lives.
