A male Makerere University student who jumped to death from a 5th floor of a girl's Hall of residence, left to a note to his father. Emmanuel Kagyina, a non-resident second year student pursuing Bachelor of Arts in Arts in the College of Humanities and social Sciences committed suicide on Monday.
Kagyina left a note explaining that he committed suicide due to family related hiccups. "This is the toughest and hardest decision one can ever make. But on taking a critical analysis about everything I had to make it," the deceased said in the note. "Dad, it's true that I wronged you in some aspects but it is also true that me and you did not share our relationship to the required standards," the deceased told his father in the note.
"To Uncle Pat, you have tried shape us as you can but the problem is that you were strict and harsh. This is the 'DOT COM ERA!!!" reads Kagyina's note.
Others mentioned in the note included: Titwe, Nabaasa, Kanankunda, Hope, Sofi, Akim and Sonku.
