More about:

Cerinah Nebanda was an outspoken member of parliament in Uganda who died suddenly in December at age 24. Was she killed as a warning to silence criticism of the president, or was it caused by a drug overdose as the government maintains?

Last week, we ran an article by Chris Baryomunsi, who is also an MP and a medical doctor. He rushed to the clinic where her body was being prepared for the initial autopsy. Here he is, in his own words, explaining what Nebanda's death, and life, means to him.
