University student Kills self
A 24-year-old university student has committed suicide together with her 5 months baby after reportedly being left high and dry by her lover.
Judith Nama was studying at Kabale university located in western Uganda until her death. She killed herself and the baby by jumping into a raging swollen river in Kisoro district.
According to local police, Nama left a suicide note together with her university identity card stating why she decided to end it all.
”The letter read that she killed herself because her lover who is the father of her baby had abandoned her. She added that her parents had also abandoned her and blamed her for getting pregnant while still at the university.” Police officer Morgan Twine said.
How she executed her suicide mission
Joan Ankwasa, an eye witness who saw her throwing herself into the river, said that she saw her placing something at bank of the river and then tightly held her baby into her arms before jumping into the raging river.
The river water immediately swallowed her and swept her lifeless body for over two kilometres. The body was discovered by a fisherman who had gone to fish and sounded the alarm. Police later came and took the body to mortuary.1152
