It has been reported that a Ugandan soldier of the Uganda People's Defence Forces (UPDF) turned on his collaged and killed several.
The soldier is one of the many UPDF soldiers in Somalia working under the African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS).
He reportedly picked up his rifle and turned against his own colleagues, shooting at them randomly, killing 3 soldiers on the spot.
"Ugandan Soldier under the UPDF ATMIS Contingent (Somalia CT/ COIN & Peace Enforcement Mission) killed 3 of his comrades in Somalia," the reliable source revealed.
It is not clear what triggered the soldier to pull out such as an unfortunate move of killing fellow soldiers.
UPDF is in Somalia for one main reason, helping the Somali National Army in the fight against al-Shabaab terrorists.
The Ugandan Military has been helping their Somalian counterparts by taking part in offensive and defensive attacks as well as training Somali soldiers.
Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) is another military group in Somalia, also working under ATMIS.
May the souls of the fallen soldiers rest in peace.
