Uganda: My Disorder Started Five Years Ago - Singer Jackie Chandiru

Former Blu*3 singer Jackie Chandiru has denied reports that drugs like heroin and cocaine are what led her to rehab.

In an interview on KFM this morning, Chandiru told the public that her troubles stemmed from the abuse of a prescription painkiller Pethidine, which was used to treat a back problem.

"My disorder started about five years ago. At that time, I had a back pain. The doctor noticed how much pain I was in and prescribed Pethidine. Pain goes away in about 30 second. I got addicted to it and started getting it without prescription," she said.
