Moses was pronounced dead by doctors at Mbarara Referral Hospital on Sunday night.

The news of Moses’ death unsettled many considering that Mande’s brother, Capt Katabazi recently perished in a car accident.

Mande said circumstances under which his son died will be fully understood after some time.

“These are questions that we need time to find answers. The family has decided to investigate the case and the process has began,” he added.

Mande fought in the NRA guerrilla war that saw President Museveni seize power in 1986.

He later fled to Rwanda fearing arrest after supporting the presidential candidacy of Dr Kizza Besigye in 2001.

He reportedly attempted to run a rebel movement under the name People’s Redemption Army (PRA) at a time of tense relations between Uganda and Rwanda.

When Presidents Museveni and Paul Kagame reconciled, PRA leaders including Mande were relocated to Sweden where he still lives.

Mande recently hinted on returning to Uganda “to fight from there for good governance.”

In his statement today, Mande said due to the “complications caused by the poison in the body” the family has decided to bury Moses on Tuesday, Sept. 8.

The deceased will be laid to rest in Kyeirumba along Mbarara-Kikagati highway.

The land dispute in Apaa recently saw women strip naked before Minister of Internal Affairs Gen Aronda Nyakairima and other top government officials.

Apaa is held to belong to either Amuru or Adjumani district.

Findings from the Uganda Wildlife Authority and some district officials from Adjumani indicates that the geographical coordinates make it clear that Apaa is firmly located in Adjumani district.

However, this has been disputed by the communities of Apaa and some political leaders in Amuru who stated that Apaa is part of Amuru district.

The major questions underlying the current fragility in Apaa remain the delicate connection between land ownership, land rights, land usage, development and return.


Amuru leaders recently met with Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda during which they agreed that the land disputes in the area are not and should not be presented as tribal in nature.

They committed themselves to work together to build trust and confidence among and between the people of the districts of Amuru and Adjumani with a view to promoting reconciliation through dialogue.

The leaders also agreed to desist from using inflammatory language that incites the public and politicising the land disputes.

They further concurred that there should be transparency in the process of acquisition of land by government or investors and affirmed the need to open up the administrative boundaries between Amuru and Adjumani districts using the 1960 and 1962 maps.

Both government and leaders agreed that the rights of the people to their land will not be affected by the opening up of the boundaries and that the boundaries of East Madi Wildlife Reserve should be opened up.
