A Senior Six student at Bukoyo Secondary School in Iganga District was on Wednesday found hanging dead in a dormitory, just two weeks before the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) exams.

Denis Tukei, 20, who hails from Pallisa District, is said to have committed suicide after allegedly misappropriating school fees for the Second and Third terms amounting to Shs1.2m.

Ms. Diana Nandaula, the Busoga East Police Spokesperson, said the deceased used a mosquito net to hang himself after being asked by the school management to go home to collect fees balances.

Ms. Nandaula said the deceased left behind a letter, informing the school authorities that he had been given fees but mismanaged it.

“He wrote a letter apologizing to the school for eating the fees and as he went back to the dormitory, he got a mosquito net and hanged himself,” Ms. Nandaula said in a brief telephone interview.

According to Ms. Nandaula, the body was discovered by students who had gone back to the dormitory for lunch.
