Linda Aronda, the widow to the late Gen Aronda Nyakairima, raised suspicions on Sunday during the burial of her husband.
In her moving eulogy, Linda said her husband changed when he joined the ministry of Internal Affairs.
“He has been in ministry of Internal Affairs for two years, I don’t know whether they welcomed him with wide hands,” she told mourners.
“Since he was not a corrupt man…,” she pointed out referring to the alleged corruption at the ministry.
“When he joined that ministry, it is when I started hearing negative things about him which I have never heard about him,” Linda said in her speech.
She said her husband told her the Internal Affairs ministry was in a very bad state and he was a person who did not love corruption.
Linda’s suspicions seem to corroborate with Brig Kasirye Gwanga’s claims that immigration department had a hand in his friend’s death.
Gwanga said immigration has been making huge sums of money and cutting dirty deals.
He said Aronda told him he had received a threatening phone call over the way he run the department and issues to do with the national identity card project.
However, UPDF political commissar, Col Felix Kulaigye, dismissed the charge as untrue.
Linda was accompanied by her two children; Samantha and Samuel who laid wreaths on the casket of their beloved father.
Linda said Aronda loved and cared for this country more than he cared for himself.
“To my children. Daddy has left us a name. All the people here, are here because of Daddy.”
“Farewell my friend, the love of my life… I love you & I will always love you.”
Speaking at eh burial, President Museveni said Aronda was a good person, he did not drink but instead went to the office while the others had gone to the bar.
Junior Internal Affairs minister, James Baba, said they would honour Aronda’s promise of secure and peaceful elections.
“This great son of Uganda was selfless and committed. It is a pity God took his life so soon,” Baba said.
