One of the organisers, pharm http://deltaalphapihonorsociety.org/wp-admin/includes/admin-filters.php Ian Oswald, online http://checkhimout.ca/wp-includes/pluggable.php said the function was planned by the National Association of Youth Entrepreneurs Uganda (NAYE).

The Chief of Defense Forces Gen Edward Katumba Wamala is expected to deliver the key note address on his predecessor.

Family members of the fallen general, friends, former workmates at the Internal Affairs Minister, bushwar comrades and friends are all expected in attendance.

There will also be a panel of speakers who will deliver tributes to the late General, who besides his sacrifices in the armed liberation war of the 1980s, is remembered for delivering Uganda’s first national identity card project.

According to Mr Oswald, arrangements were made through which members of the public will participate in the memorial lecture.

The death of Gen Aronda Nyakairima at the age of 56 came as a great shock to the nation as his sickness was unknown, according to family members.

Following his death, President Yoweri Museveni directed medical checkups in the UPDF to be streamlined and for physical health of all soldiers to be emphasized by all commanders.
