Guard shoots lover, kills self
DAILY MONITOR – ENTEBBE: Residents of Kajjansi Zone A were left in shock after a private security guard working at Uganda clays Kajjansi shot dead a colleague before turning the gun to himself.
It is believed Simon Egesa shot Susan Nandudu both attached to Ultimate security Uganda and deployed at Uganda clays which is a few meters from Kajjansi police station after they had a misunderstanding.
A colleague who worked with the deceased told this reporter that the two were lovers and stayed together in Kitende along Entebbe road but no one had a clue what would have prompted the shooting.
The colleague said Nandudu left her guard house where she is stationed and moved to Egesa’s watch house from where she was shot dead.
Residents believe Nandudu had probably gone to apologise to Egesa over a misunderstanding they had but things did not work out as they both ended up dead.
Mr Emilian Kayima the Police spokesperson confirmed the incident and said police were investigating the case.
