“..point number one, am annoyed because Aronda died from a condition that either wasn’t detected or if detected wasn’t addressed properly” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni at the Funeral of Gen. Aronda
General Aronda Nyakairima sudden demise and death have always boggled me. I have never had the ability to let it go. As he was an astound and respected general. Someone who was standing by his orders and by his office. That is why I really wonder, what really happen. Because, there are some issues that doesn’t add up.
That is why I just have these different sources. I do now, what has happen, but the lack of answers further undermine the stories itself. It doesn’t help that New Vision and other News Organizations have deleted content in regards to sudden demise of the General. That adds to further speculations, as the state wants to keep it a secret and not really tell what happen.
Here are a few sources, that adds to further speculation. That without taking the allegations made by Tom Voltaire Okwalinga (TVO), whose had plenty to say about the death of Gen. Aronda. Therefore, just sources, that I see as reliable in this matter.
“The spokeswoman of ministry of interior affairs Ms Pamela Ankunda confirmed the death of Aronda, she says General Nyakairima died last night on board a flight from South Korea to Uganda. General Nyakairima who left Uganda in good health according to unconfirmed reports died of cardiac arrest on transit to Dubai from South Korea. According to ministry officials, Gen Nyakairima had travelled on official duty and was in a health condition” (South Sudan Liberty News – ‘UGANDAN INTERIOR AFFAIRS MINISTER GENERAL ARONDA NYAKAIRIMA IS DEAD ON BOARD PLANE FROM SOUTH KOREA’ 12.09.2015).
Dr. Kizza Besigye statement:
“Even in the best of times, sudden death raises strong suspicion of possible foul play. Yet, Gen Aronda’s death happened in times that cannot be remotely considered as good. It occurred against a background of many suspicious deaths of high-ranking government and military officials. It also happened against a background of a specific warning that his life could be in eminent danger. The concerns spelt out in the Gen Sejusa’s letter, which triggered serious fallout in government security circles cannot be ignored, when such a death occurs. It’s prudent that all possible angles relevant to the inevitable investigation into the cause and circumstances surrounding Gen Aronda’s death are explored. This is important for the family, the government and the country at large. It’s wrong to hush up any information that may have relevance to establishing the cause of death”(Kizza Besigye – ‘FARE THEE WELL GENERAL ARONDA NYAKAIRIMA’ 14.09.2015).
“Speaking to thousands of mourners at Kololo Independence grounds where requiem prayers were held today, Lindah said for the 19 years that she has been married, she has never seen any such symptoms of heart failure. “This heart problem that you are talking about, OK, it may have been there but we have never seen it. My [two] children are my witnesses”, she said. “…The 20 years we have been with my husband, I have never seen him fail to get out of bed [because he was] sick.” She said they got married on April 13, 1996” (The Observer – ‘Aronda: widow ‘questions’ heart attack postmortem report’ 18.09.2015).
Big Eye Sources:
“Sources say he died of cardiac arrest. However, another trusted source said that the army man could have died of food poisoning. Furthermore, the source says he had complained of stomach pains before facing his untimely demise last night on his flight to Dubai” (Big Eye – ‘Breaking News: Gen. Aronda Nyakairima dead, here’s what killed him’ 12.09.2015).
“On September 11, the 56-year-old minister of internal affairs, General Aronda Nyakairima, died mysteriously on a flight from South Korea to Dubai. There were rumors that he — like others who might not have carried out President Museveni’s biddings with complete perfection — was poisoned. (Museveni did himself no favors to delegitimize this notion by behaving dubiously at the funeral.) But that wasn’t the only theory. Another one soon arose and gained significant traction: He had been killed by the Amuru women — fragile old ladies who never laid a finger on him and hadn’t even seen him for half a year” (Phil Wilmot – ‘Did grandmothers kill a government minister, nonviolently?’ 08.01.2016, Waging Nonviolence).
Well, this is what is available of possible sources. I don’t know, but since its like this and unanswered. Secondly, not even tried to do a proper investigations on why he died. Something that Besigye asked for and no authority, no security organization or anyone delivered upon.
Like they where afraid of the possible truth and what they could find. Certainly, the closed books, the secrets and the rumours are there for a reason in this matters. As high-ranking officials doesn’t just die over nothing. A General of the higest esteem at the time. They stop for a reason and becomes someone who somebody needs to be stopped. Because, to me, this doesn’t add up and there must be something hidden somewhere. That will unleash the truth. Reveal the missing dots and configure the reasons for his sudden demise.
A demise like this, doesn’t happen over nothing. Alas, I don’t have the answer, I really don’t, but the mismatch of stories, the rumours and the allegation will continue to linger on. Until answers are provided and have settled the matter. Peace.
