A cab driver has confessed to selling American television producer Jeff Rice the tainted drugs which killed him in a hotel in Uganda, it emerged today.

Moses Kalanzi, a 23-year-old ‘special hire driver’, was arrested for allegedly supplying contaminated cocaine to Mr Rice and his assistant Kathryne Fuller, who has been left paralysed after taking the drug.

The driver is co-operating with police and could face charges for his role in the transaction, according to Ugandan newspaper the Daily Monitor.

An official toxicology report confirmed the narcotic was in Jeff Rice’s blood, dispelling initial suspicions the father-of-two known for his work on the U.S. show ‘The Amazing Race,’ had been poisoned by attackers.

Police say a quantity of heroin was also discovered in the hotel room and they have arrested a local dealer who they suspect to have supplied the drugs.

Uganda police spokesperson Asuman Mugenyi said: ‘Rice … used cocaine which had lethal additives and that’s what killed him.’

Brad Nathanson, a private investigator and friend of Mr Rice, said he had been shown the toxicology report by police and there was no evidence of ‘foul play’ in Rice’s death.
