15-year-old girl commits suicide over poor exam results, leaves names of people who mocked at her
A 15-year-old girl who sat her Primary Leaving Exams (PLE) at Bwikya Muslim Primary School in Hoima City, western Uganda, last year committed suicide after supposedly performing poorly.
Daphine Kimuli vanished from her house three days after the Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) issued last year’s PLE results on July 16, 2021, in which she scored an aggregate of 25.
Her family’s search for her was fruitless. Her body, however, was discovered hanging from a jackfruit tree near her home in Bwikya ward, Hoima East division, by a 35-year-old neighbour on Wednesday, July 21, according to Mr Julius Hakiza, Albertine regional police spokesperson.
“The scene was photographed and postmortem has been done,” Mr Hakiza told Daily Monitor UG
Mr Hakiza said Kimuli left a suicide note in which she wrote down a list of people whom she described as her enemies.
“She also claimed that there were people laughing at her for performing poorly in PLE,” Mr Hakiza said.
The dead, according to police, counselled her fellow children and relatives not to commit suicide.
Kimuli wrote in the note that she had decided to leave her alleged adversaries “to enjoy their world while she was heading somewhere else.”
Two people have been arrested in order to assist with the investigation. One of the suspects was allegedly discovered with Kimuli’s note, which she kept without alerting the girl’s family and only revealed after her death. Kimuli, she claimed, had given her the note.
One of the people named Kimuli’s “enemies” in the note is the other suspect. The accused are being held at the central police station in Hoima.
The event was reported to Kinuubi police station, which dispatched scene of crime officers as well as the homicide unit to investigate.
