“The father even got him a position at St Kizito SS Namugongo, but he wasn’t happy about the choice.”
According to Owoyesigyire, the father suspects it could be the cause of the suicide.
“The body of the deceased has been taken to the mortuary for a post mortem.The police urge parents to report to the police or seek professional help whenever they detect signs of depression manifesting in their children.”
