President Museveni who returned from a four day visit in Japan yesterday evening will today visit the home of deceased Internal Affairs Minister Gen. AAronda Nyakairama, House revealed.
President Museveni said tha;”I received news of Gen. Aronda’s death the other day when I arrived in India, my immediate thinking was maybe it was an accident. I didn’t know he had any medical problem. Because when we came from the bush, many died of AIDS but Aronda was disciplined, he survived.
He died on plane coming from South Korea. We are busy finding out the cause of his death, but that will not bring him back, it is very sad.
Aronda together with few others helped us start afresh and rebuilt the country. It is a big loss. He has made his contribution.
It is an untimely death at 56yrs. He helped with the ID Project, it was stuck but he moved it. From the p’ple here, it shows who Aronda was. At first I thought he had traveled alone. I was relieved to learn he was with four or five p’ple. It makes it easier to ask what went on.”
Gen. Aronda died of heart attack while on transit in Dubai from South Korea.
Four pathologists, including two police experts and the other family members, arrived in Dubai yesterday morning to carry out post mortem on the body of Gen. Aronda Nyakairima.
Hon Mary Karooro Okurut (MP) Spokesperson of The Task Force set up by Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda said it continues to hold meetings to make arrangements for the return of the body for burial and “details regarding repatriation of the body and burial arrangements will be communicated in due course.”
