Three people have committed suicide by hanging in Kigezi Region within in a space of four days. The latest victim is Hebert Banyenzaki, a resident of Ntungamo village in Karorwa parish in Bukinda Sub County Rukiga district.  

His lifeless body was found hanging on a rope inside his house around 2:20pm on Sunday afternoon. The deceased’s wife, Allen Kyampeire, says Banyenzaki woke up normally but they were shocked to find his body hanging on a rope inside the house in the afternoon.    

According to Kyampeire, the deceased took his own life when all family members were away attending prayers at Ryabirengye Church of Uganda. Denis Turyatemba, the Bukinda Sub County Youth Councilor, says Banyenzaki could have ended his life through suicide out of disparity after testing HIV positive.  

Turtyatembe says Banyenzaki had earlier said that he deserves to die because he is tired of taking Antiretroviral Drugs (ARVs). On Saturday, 60-year-old, Samuel Bangirana, a resident of Rutooma village in Nyabikoni ward in Central Division in Kabale Municipality was also found hanging inside his house.

His son Innocent Kajungu says Bangirana told them on Saturday morning that he felt like dying but they didn’t take it seriously since he was known for making jokes.   He however, says they were shocked to find him hanging inside the houses after using a mosquito net to take his own life.

On Friday, John Asiimwe, a resident of Bijeje Village in Kamiro parish in Muko Sub county in Rubanda district was also found hanging dead on a tree in Kishanje village in Nyakabungo ward in Rubanda town council.
