Minister of Internal Affairs, Gen Aronda Nyakairima at his residence in Buziga.
The delegation that included AIGP Ochom Edward (Director R & P), AIGP Turyagumanawe Grace (Director PSO), AIGP Mugenyi Asuman (CPC), AIGP Andrew Sorowen (Director Special Duties), AIGP Elizabeth Muwanga (Director of welfare), AIGP Wafuba (Director Oil & Gas), AIGP Grace Akullo (Director CID), AIGP Kasiima Steven (Director Traffic & Road Safety and AIGP Ndungutse John (Director CT), met and extended their sympathies to the widow, children, family friends who have been affected by his loss. The team expressed appreciation for his work as an important and valued leader who built a reputation for championing progressive and innovative programs designed to target crime and criminals.
As a mark of respect and honor, we joined the nation to fly flags at half-mast at all Police units in remembrance of our fallen distinguished Minister for Internal Affairs.
But the Police never relent and never gives up.
We have remained brave and strong in the face of this loss of an historical figure who had devoted himself entirely to the cause of Police within a short stint as Minister for Internal Affairs; he relent his knowledge to the strategic evolution of the force in the context of a struggle to ensure public order, peace and tranquility prevailed, all in the defense of our country Uganda.
He remarkably mastered the art of conflict management, with outstanding courage as he stood his word while debating policing issues on the floor of parliament and other forces. All this is because he loved his work and strongly believed in rule of law. He will always remain a prominent figure, a role model, a parent, elder and leader and an intellectual who promoted and observed values of best practice in an exemplary and highly respected to all Police officers in a progressive institution.
The best thing we can tell his family and all Ugandans, is that his work will never be forgotten. We vow to carry on his dream and legacy to see every Ugandan with a National identity, by ensuring its usefulness is enforced as a multi-application card within our country including the enhancement of security.
To the Police fraternity, he will forever be a blessing in our everyday policing lives, as we remember his career as a revolutionary with a holistic magical touch that humbled everyone, including those dissenting forces.
We want to thank the Government of Uganda, cabinet and parliament for honoring him, and all well-wishers who have shown their grief with the family and the Police
Gen. Aronda, we wish you a safe journey, and may the good Lord have mercy upon you and rest your soul in eternal peace.
The other members of the delegation were Deputy Directors, Heads of Departments and units in the Uganda Police Force
