The body of Internal Affairs minister, Gen Aronda Nyakairima, has arrived in his home district, Rukungiri.
Army spokesman, Lt Col Paddy Ankunda, confirmed the development.
Ankunda said thousands of people have already gathered at the former army commander’s home in Nyakiju to offer prayers so his soul can rest in eternal peace.
Gen. Aronda Nyakairima who died in flight from South Korea to Dubai on Saturday, was brought home on Wednesday and lay in state at Parliament on Thursday where MPs paid him tribute.
On Friday, the body was taken to Kololo Independence Grounds for a church service.
As earlier planned, today, Saturday, the body has been flown to his ancestral home in Rukingiri for burial.
Aronda’s remains will be laid to rest tomorrow, Sunday.
President Yoweri Museveni will be the chief mourner.
