Dr. James Rwanyarare, pilule the former Minister of Youth, order Culture and Community Development in the Obote II government has ruled out the possibility of President Museveni being responsible for the death of Internal Affairs Minister, site Gen Aronda Nyakairima.

Rwanyarare praised president Museveni as a “god man” whose NRM government he said is “so tolerant to divergent views”.

He said, unlike in the past when killing of opposition politicians by government was the order of the day, the current government believes in tolerance and forgiveness.

Dr Rwanyarare said he was among the people opposed to President Museveni’s government but has never received any threat from the state.

“President Museveni is a good man. He has no connection with the death of Aronda,” said Rwanyarare.

“There is no way such a thing can happen. The people to blame are those that handled the post-mortem. They did not explain it very well.”

Rwanyarare was addressing mourners at the memorial ceremony of Fred Kachwezi, one of the fallen founders of the Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) in Kabale during the weekend.

Gen Aronda passed away on September 12 while transiting through to Dubai from South Korea to Uganda.

Doctors said he succumbed to heart failure, a report whose authenticity was questioned by Aronda’s widow, Linda.

Rwanyarare described Aronda as a military man who was friendly, calm and non-discriminative.

The Emeritus Bishop of Kigezi diocese Rt. Rev. George Katwesigye said “everyone on earth is a candidate of death so people should be ready to die when time comes.”

Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda described Kachwezi as a role model in Uganda’s politics.

Dr. Rugunda said even though Kachwezi was a UPC supporter he never discriminated people who did not belong to his political party.

He described the deceased as a principled man, adding, “even when the UPC government led by Dr. Apollo Milton Obote fell he remained in his party.”

Rugunda’s message was read by Joseph Mutebile during the requiem service held at Nyabushabi Primary School playground in Muyumbu parish, Kyanamira sub-county, Kabale district.

Kachwezi succumbed to cancer of the bones at the age of 88 at Mengo Hospital in Kampala last week.

He is survived by six children and a widow.
