UPDF is investigating circumstances under which one of its soldiers shot himself in the head and died.
Colleagues said Private Godfrey Nandasaba shot himself inside his army tent at Kisogi-Rwimi army detach in Kabonero Sub County in the western district of Bunyangabu.
Capt George Musinguzi, the UPDF Mountain Division Spokesperson, said the shooting happened at 6pm on Friday.
He said Pte Nandasaba’s colleagues suddenly heard bullets from his tent and when they rushed there to check what had happened, they found him lifeless with a shuttered head.
Pte Musinguzi said they are investigating circumstances under which Nandasaba cut his life short, adding that they already have leads.
“It could have been as a result of a family misunderstanding,” he said.
