A 15-year-old girl, who sat for her Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) at Bwikya Muslim Primary School in Hoima City in western Uganda last year, has committed suicide after she reportedly performed poorly.
Relatives told police that Daphine Kimuli disappeared from home three days ago after Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) on July 16, 2021, released last year’s PLE results in which she scored aggregate 25.
Her family’s efforts to find her proved futile. However, her body was found hanging on a jackfruit tree near her home in Bwikya ward in Hoima East division on Wednesday, July 21, by a 35- year-old neighbour, said Mr Julius Hakiza, the Albertine regional police spokesperson.
The neighbour reported the incident to Kinuubi police post which deployed crime officers and the homicide team to investigate.
“The scene was photographed and postmortem has been done,” Mr Hakiza told Daily Monitor UG.
