A 30-year-old man has been arrested by the police in Juba for allegedly beating his mother to a state of coma.

An eyewitness, Simon Gatwech, said the suspect, Samuel Deng, was arrested for beating his biological mother “without any provocation.”

Samuel, however, denied the allegation. He said, “I did not beat her but I know that when I came back from a nightclub at that time I was drunk I just locked her up in her room.”
