Police in Rukungiri District are investigating circumstances under which a senior four student at Rukungiri High School was found dead just hours to sit her final examination paper.

The body of Brenda Ankunda who was supposed to sit her final examination paper yesterday was retrieved from Kahengye stream on Wednesday after she left home on Monday saying she was going to school to prepare for her final paper.

Ankunda was last week reportedly sent home after writing her Agriculture paper with instructions that she would return Thursday to sit her Literature in Kiswahili exams.

 However, the school head teacher, Robert Mbasa, said yesterday that they waited for her to show up for hours in vain until when they decided to contact her parents only to be told she had left home on March 29th, 2021 saying she was going to school.

When Ankunda’s family yesterday went to police to report a missing person, they were shocked to learn that a body of an unidentified woman which police had retrieved from the stream on Wednesday was that of their daughter.

Police said they retrieved the body from Kahengye stream and took it to Rwakabengo Health Centre III mortuary for postmortem as they waited for relatives to claim it.

By press time yesterday evening, detectives were still investigating the cause of Ankunda’s death, according to Victor Arimpa, the Rukungiri police CID.
