Man attempts to bury his son alive following paternity doubts

A man in Sironko district is on the run for attempting to bury his three year-old-son alive. The suspect has been identified as Simon Manake,38, a resident of Mayiyi village, Bukusege parish Busamaga Sub-county in Sironko district.

Tom Kidandi, the LC I chairperson of Mayiyi village, says that Manake developed misunderstandings with his wife only identified as Irene on Saturday on the parentage of their three-year-old son. He added that as local leaders they intervened in the matter and counseled the couple hoping that they would reconcile. 

Kidandai notes that Manake dug a grave later and tried to bury the minor alive prompting his wife to raise alarm, which attracted locals. Manake fled into hiding.

Moses Maduli, the LCIII chairperson of Busamaga Sub-county, says that Manake acted under the influence of alcohol. He adds that Manake is fond of consuming excessive alcohol, which forces him into fights with his wife. 

He says that they have launched a manhunt for Manake who is on the run to answer charges of attempted murder.
