Uganda Media Centre boss, Ofwono Opondo confirmed the President’s contribution on Monday.

There are unconfirmed reports that Deputy Premier Gen Moses Ali is lobbying for a state burial for the deceased, a move that is likely to rattle the nation considering that the departed General served in the dictator’s regime which was accused of mass slaughter of Ugandans and gross abuse of human rights.

Nevertheless, Mustafa was later injured in a suspicious accident in 1978 after Amin feared that he intended to overthrow his government.

This sparked off a mutiny in the army, with soldiers loyal to Mustafa crossing to Tanzania. Amin dispatched troops to hunt own the mutineers leading to the Kagera crisis and eventual Tanzanian invasion that toppled the dictator.

Having toppled Amin and then Obote, the NRA under President later rehabilitated Adrisi by providing him a house in Arua, where is expected to be buried.

Adrisi recently excited the nation when he decided to return to school for a primary leaving certificate.
