A source in the area said the young man, a 19-year old, believed to be a political thug had a machete in his hand and was on his way out, probably to cause violence, when his mother stopped him.

It was gathered that he got angry and attacked his mother with the machete he was holding and ran away.

The woman died from cuts sustained in the attack, it was gathered.

The source said the young man was however accosted by youths in the community, who brought the matter to the Paramount Ruler of Ugep.

Efforts to get the police proved abortive as calls to the Police Public Relations Officer did not go through.
