Daphine Kimuli, a 15-year-old girl, apparently committed herself after being ridiculed for her bad test score. Last year, the deceased did poorly in her Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) at Bwikya Muslim Primary School in Hoima City, western Uganda.
Kimuli vanished from her house three days after the Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) announced her PLE results from last year, in which she had a total score of 25.
On Wednesday, a 35-year-old neighbor discovered her dead hanging from a jackfruit tree near her home in Bwikya ward, Hoima East division, after repeated attempts to locate her.
Julius Hakiza, a police spokesman, confirmed the sad occurrence, saying it was reported by a neighbor at Kinuubi police station.
The police arrived at the homicide scene right away, and her corpse was hauled away for an autopsy. Kimuli left a suicide note in which she listed several people she described as her enemies, according to Hakiza.
Kimuli wrote in the message that she had decided to leave her alleged adversaries “to enjoy their world as she was going somewhere else.”
Two persons have been detained, one of them was reportedly discovered with Kimuli’s note, which she retained without telling the deceased’s parents.
The girl said that Kimuli gave her the message and that she didn’t tell her parents about it until she was discovered dead.
