Her family’s efforts to find her since July 16, 2021 proved futile.

However, her body was found hanging on a jackfruit tree near her home in Bwikya ward in Hoima East division on Wednesday by a 35- year-old neighbor, said Julius Hakiza, the Albertine regional police spokesperson.

The neighbor reported the incident to Kinuubi police post which deployed scene of crime officers and the homicide team to investigate.

“The scene was photographed and postmortem has been done,” Hakiza said.

He said Kimuli left a suicide note in which she listed several people whom she described as her enemies.

“She also claimed that there were people laughing at her for performing poorly in PLE,” Hakiza added.

In the note seen by police, Kimuli said she had decided to leave her purported enemies “to enjoy their world as she was going somewhere else.”

Two people have been arrested to help in investigations. One of the suspects was allegedly found with Kimuli’s note which she kept without informing the girl’s family, only to bring it to their attention after her death. She said Kimuli had given her the note.
