Herbert Rwakihembo, a UPDF lance corporal accused of murdering three women including his wife has been charged with three counts of murder in a public trial before the Divisional Court martial at Luzira Church of Uganda primary School on Monday.

Rwakihembo, who is attached to Luzira Military barracks in Kampala was tried before a fully packed public court as a lesson to other soldiers.

The move is aimed at holding undisciplined soldiers directly accountable to the people and ensuring that justice is seen being done to the offenders.

The soldier is accused of shooting his wife Irene Kawendeke and two other women in a saloon in Kisenyi zone III in Luzira, Nakawa Municipality in Kampala on December 10, 2012 at around 7:45pm.

This was after he confronted his wife over accountability of profits from a business he had funded to which Irene replied by brushing him off to the cheers of the other women in the saloon.

He walked to the barracks and retrieved his gun – an AK 47, which he used to shoot the three women dead.
