News has been buzzing lately with drug stories all over the region. First it was the drama about the Akasha brothers who got bundled into a private jet in Mombasa before getting forcefully extradited to the US by the DEA.
Then followed news that a couple of Tanzanian celebrities had been nabbed on suspicion of drug trafficking. Mega superstar Diamond Platnumz’s name got floated around too. So was his brother’s, ex Wema Sepetu, singer TID and others.

It however turns out that a fake news site by the name Metro UK, cooked up the story that Kansiime was searched by the customs and border police on suspicion and inside her luggage was discovered a small bag containing white powder.
That authorities conducted a second search and that’s when they discovered a similar bag which was tested and turned positive for cocaine. The estimated value of the nabbed with, according to the blog, was 80,000 pounds.
Anne Kansiime issued a statement upon receipt of the information. She said:
