A 21 year old man suspected to be a psychiatric patient has hacked to death his own biological father and seriously wounded the mother in Dedxa.
Dedxa police deputy spokesperson constable cassim Manda said the deceased is Bisweck Misomali 61 and the suspect Solomoni Misomali from Kamala village TA Kachere in the district.
“Last night we received the tip that Solomoni Misomali killed his father by hacking him on the head with an axe and his mother on the neck. When we asked him he pleaded guilty and explained that he committed the offence because his spirits had commended him to do so to get rid of the burden they contributed to earth,” explained Manda.
