Police in Kabale are holding an 80-year-old man for allegedly spearing his son to death over land disputes.

Charles Katarakwenda, a resident of Nyakiharo cell, Mwanjari ward, Southern Division in Kabale Municipality, is alleged to have speared Andrew Ndyareeba who was aged 42.

The incident occurred on Friday at around 3pm while at their home in Nyakiharo. Until his death Ndyareeba was a night watchman at Ndorwa Secondary School in Kabale town.

Katarikwenda is said to have given Ndyareeba a piece of land two years ago as a share on the family property. However, a misunderstanding erupted when Katarikwenda turned against the decision and withdrew his statement of giving out the piece of land to Ndyareeba.

Moses Tubaho, a neighbour to the family says he was alerted by noise of the two fighting. Tubaho says that when he arrived to separate them, Katarakwenda picked a spear and stabbed Ndyareeba on the left shoulder from the back as he cursed him to die. 

Tubaho says that Ndyareeba died as a result of excessive bleeding as locals prepared to rush him to Kabale Regional Referral Hospital for treatment.

Elly Maate, the police spokesperson for Kigezi region says that Katarikwenda was immediately arrested and is being detained at Kabale Police Station pending further investigations.

Maate says the suspect will appear in court to answer charges of murder.
