KISORO- A Uganda Peoples Defence Force soldier has shot dead his girlfriend and a maid in what seems to be a quarrel gone bad.

The suspect, a 39-year old UPDF soldier attached to the 7th Battalion in Kisoro District, who has been arrested, allegedly shot dead his girlfriend and the maid after a domestic quarrel on Saturday at around 1am.

The Kisoro District Police Commander, Mr Bosco Otim, identified the deceased as Teopista Nyiramugisha, 32, and her maid Peninah Kampire, 17.
“The suspect has been arrested on allegation of murder. Police’s investigations into the matter are ongoing,” Mr Otim told Daily Monitor in a telephone interview in Kampala yesterday.
This is the fifth major shooting by a UPDF soldier in less than a year. The most recent was in Mbuya, Kampala suburb where a soldier shot dead three people including his lover.
