41-year-old man jailed for chasing his mother from her home
Ibanda Grade One magistrate’s court had sentenced a 41-year-old man to 23 months in prison for destroying his mother’s garden of beans and threatening to kill her last month.
Appearing before her worship Esther Murungi, Godwin Kananura, a resident of Nyakatookye I, Rugazi ward in Kagongo Division, Ibanda Municipality, pleaded guilty to the offence, begging his mother for forgiveness.
Kananura was arrested on October 25th for destroying the old woman’s garden of beans and threatening to kill her.
Reports indicate that the convict had also chased his mother from her home and she was currently renting in the trading centre.
Fiona Kabashomi, the convict’s sister, said the RDC’s office had some time back intervened in the matter and ordered him to leave the house, but he refused.
Her worship Murungi ordered Kananura to never return to his mother’s home when he leaves prison. She warned that he will get the maximum sentence if he returns and distresses his mother.
The magistrate advised him to use the time in jail to learn some skills as he prepares for life after prison.
The convict’s mother, Dativa Kahindi, 75, was satisfied with the sentence, saying she can now sleep without fearing of being attacked by her ungrateful son.
