A Facebook user from that country, Basudde Sam, posted the sad story on his page and narrated how Sabiti, a resident of Nsambya Barracks, killed his wife before turning the same gun at himself after he allegedly tested positive for the virus.

Confirming the incident, the Kampala Metropolitan Police Deputy spokesman, Paul Kangave, said in a statement:

“We have recovered the test results of HIV for the wife, Akol and the children except for the man. These reads negative.

We suspect that the man must have found himself positive and took a wrong decision. He planned it since he took all the family members for HIV test on January 24, 2017.”

Sam added that this is the second police officer to kill himself in two months after Patrick Oloya, a Field Force Unit (FFU) personnel attached to the Pader Central Police Station, shot himself to dead after locking himself inside his uniport house at the police barracks in December 2017.
