A Special Police Constable who had been deployed to guard at President Yoweri Museveni’s State Lodge in Jinja town has committed suicide.
ASP Abas Muwaira hanged himself near the lodge’s kitchen.
Jinja District Police Commander Felix Mugizi, killed himself using a wire mesh and added that authorities are investigating the matter.
According to Mugizi, Muwaira did not spend the night at his area of deployment.
“I understand he had gone to see his family, but when he came back the following afternoon he was informed that thieves had cut part of the fence. It seems he feared to be questioned by his bosses and decided to hang himself,” Mr Mugizi said.
The deceased had been the only security officer deployed at the premises.
