Police mouthpiece for Kampala metropolitan Luke Owoyesigire says a medical report from Government Analytical laboratory confirmed that Zalwango died of poison.

However, an independent source at the CID says detectives are trying to find out UBA Bank officials immediately closed her account after getting information that she had just disappeared.
Detectives are also trying to establish why UBA bank did not wait for Zalwango to be buried and managed to get a replacement in shortest time possible.
“We are interested in finding out why the bank management was rushing with its radical decisions. Ideally when your employee dies at least you wait for that person to be buried but for UBA it was as if they had prepared for her replacement even when we had not discovered her body.” one the investigators intimated to us.
It is also alleged that the management did not send condolences to help in the burial arrangements of its staff and that condolences messages were not given during her send off.
