A Form Four student in Mwanza has committed suicide by hanging himself to a mango tree branch in a maize garden at Benjamini Village in the area of Inkosi Kanduku Maseko in the district.
Mwanza Police Station Deputy Spokesperson Hope Kasakula has confirmed the development saying the boy was found hanging to a tree in a maize garden located near the school where he has been learning on Sunday afternoon.
“He was found by community members who informed the police.
“When medical examinations were conducted it was confirmed that the boy died due to suffocation as a result of strangulation,” said Kasakula.
He said it is not clear as to why the boy killed himself as investigations are underway.
Some rumours from unconfirmed sources indicate the deceased recently impregnated a fellow student, a development which they claim left him depressed.
