A team of officers from the Police Fire and Rescue Services in Mityana led by their Commandant, Vigar Afiman rushed to retrieve the body that was hanging on a banana fiber. 

Police handed over the body to Mityana hospital for postmortem to establish the cause of death. It is still unclear whether or not the teenager took his own life or was killed. 

However, some residents suspect the boy could have taken his life because of mistreatment by his mother, Agnes Nabatanzi. Alice Namakula says the boy has been threatening to commit suicide because of mistreatment.
