As Ugandans try to come to terms with the horrific news of a girl who brutally killed her boyfriend, who was a journalist in Bushenyi District, western Uganda, she has confessed that she killed him because he had infected her with the HIV virus.
Loyce Mbaine has told the police today during interrogation that she felt so betrayed after testing positive for HIV, yet she had all along been faithful to her boyfriend King Allan Mandela.
“After testing positive for HIV I carried out my own investigation and learnt that my boyfriend Mandela Allan was HIV positive too and had been taking Anti-retroviral drugs (ARVs) secretly for a long time,” Mbaine told the police.
Mbaine, a receptionist at Hunter Bushenyi FM, who is currently held at Bushenyi Central Police Station told detectives that she went at her boyfriend’s place determined to kill, carrying a brand new panga and kitchen knife in her bag, which he later used to savagely kill the young handsome man .
The deceased will be laid to rest today at his parents’ ancestral home in Bishozi village, Ishaka, Mbarara District.
Meanwhile the police revealed that they are gathering evidence and will parade Mbaine in court to face murder charges when their investigations are completed.
