Captain Claver Bagabe of the Uganda People’s Defense Forces -UPDF in Kisoro district has committed suicide.
Captain Bagabe had been deployed by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to work as the Operation Wealth Creation -OWC coordinator in charge of Bufumbira South Constituency in Kisoro.
Bagabe committed suicide yesterday in the early evening at his home in Nyakabingo village, Chahi sub-county, and his body in full military uniform was still hanging on a rope by midnight
Neighbors told our reporter that Captain Bagabe had earlier been seen alone at home and he closed himself inside his house and locked all the doors and windows. When his family members came, they knocked but he did not open.
Because all the doors and windows are metallic, the perturbed family members got a welder at around 08:00 PM to force the door open. Upon opening, they were shocked to find the captain Bagabe hanging on a rope, dead.
When contacted, Colonel Deo Kayita, Kisoro district OWC program coordinator says that he had received the news but was yet to reach the scene to confirm it himself.
