However, relatives said Kareeba has been sick for the last two years and that efforts aimed at saving his life at top hospitals in Europe and South Africa did not bear fruit.

Uganda’s Ambassador to Rwanda, Richard Kabonero, said Uganda has “lost a gallant soldier.”

Kareeba was the Aide-de-camp to her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II during the Commonwealth Summit in Uganda in 2007.

On May 2012, Lt Col Dan Rex, the Equerry to Queen Elizabeth wrote to Kareeba to comfort him.

“Her Majesty was concerned to learn of your recent illness and has commanded that I write to you and send you and your family her best wishes at this difficult time. The queen retains fond memories of Her Majesty’s visit to Uganda in 2007 during which you acted as her ADC.”

Kareeba, who served in Pensions department of UPDF, is the second Brigadier to die in just a year after 2nd Division Commander, Brig Patrick Kankiriho.
