Uganda: Nebanda - Govt to Investigate Every Suspect

Government will investigate whoever is suspected to have had a hand in the death of MP Cerinah Nebanda.

Internal Affairs minister Hillary Onek in a statement issued to the press at Uganda Media Centre said, "All suspicious behavior will be investigated irrespective of whether one is an MP, high ranking or low."

The minister added: "Government is extremely concerned and indeed much more suspicious at the way some political leaders are quickly turning the matter into a political contest, interfering with professional process of investigation and using the press to peddle a malicious campaign.

Could this be some deliberate cover up? Could some of them be having some clues that they are trying to hide through diversionary political attacks on government? This is a matter government cannot let go."
