St. Valentine’s Day, observed to celebrate love, ironically turned tragic in Kisoro District after a UPDF commander shot his wife dead before turning the gun on himself.


Lt. David Okumu, 45, the Busanza detach commander, allegedly became furious after his wife, Teddy Akuru, reportedly received a romantic short text message (SMS) on her mobile phone which he suspected was from another lover.

But the police and army remained guarded on whether it was a crime of passion. “We were shocked after receiving the information of the UPDF commander shooting himself shortly after shooting his wife,” said Kisoro District Police Commander George Abaho.”


“We have visited the scene of crime and investigations are going on. The cause of the shooting is not yet clear but preliminary information indicates that the cause might have been domestic violence.”


Mr Abaho declined to be drawn into the Valentine SMS theory though some detectives, talking on condition of anonymity, told Daily Monitor that the text message had a hand in the brawl turned bloody.

Mr Abaho said the incident took place at Busanza village at about 1am Sunday morning. He said both bodies had been taken for autopsy at Kisoro Hospital mortuary.


The UPDF 2nd Division spokesperson, Capt. Robert Kamara, said a team had been constituted to investigate the matter. “We are told that the two developed a misunderstanding but we haven’t established what that misunderstanding was,” he said.


“A body of inquiry headed by the second-in-command of 307 Brigade Maj. Agong has been put in place, to understand what the cause was,” Capt. Kamara told Daily Monitor in Mbarara yesterday.


He, however, said the officer breached army regulations by taking his spouse into the barracks. “This kind of behaviour is not allowed in the UPDF, especially officers having their spouses in a detach,” he said.

If it turns out to be a crime of passion, the Kisoro incident will become one of the several recorded in recent months.

Sijui lini abundance law itaingia kwenye vichwa vyetu. Kwanini mpaka uue na ujie wakati kuna alternative kibao bado zipo open?
