Death and subsequent investigation
A government chemist's post-mortem report stated that cocaine, heroin, alcohol and several other chemicals were found in Nebanda's blood, gut and tissue samples. However, at Nebanda's funeral, the Speaker of the Parliament of Uganda, Rebecca Kadaga rejected this government report. Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni then spoke out to deny that the National Resistance Movement—the political party of both himself and Nebanda—had killed her.
The Observer newspaper reported that some Ugandan Members of Parliament (MPs)[who?] believe that Nebanda was poisoned, as she was a vocal critic of the government, and that the state was "arresting anyone suspected to be propagating that line". Among those arrested were two MPs, one of whom was Mohamed Nsereko.
On 2 January 2013, police announced that they had opened an investigation into Nebanda's death, and linked it to what they called "a narcotic drug syndicate operating in a number of countries including Uganda, Pakistan, and South Sudan". On 4 January, Nebanda's boyfriend was arrested in Kenya, and extradited to Uganda for questioning by police.
