On March 6, 1987, Dr. Kayiira was murdered in cold blood. Saturday, March 6, 2010 marks the 23rd Anniversary of his death.
With his Uganda Freedom Movement Dr. Kayiira was serious on liberating Uganda from dictatorship. With his UFA his approach was a surgical one. M7 with his NRA the approach was of a protracted and resistance war.
In early eighties Dr. Kayiira landed a sizeable and effective consignment of armaments. Before taking any surgical moves with them he had consultation with Museveni. He suggested that he was going to hit Obote’s life nerve, the army barracks positioned in the Lubiri. He requested Museveni and his troops to participate in the exercise of taking over Kampala and returning the country to the people.
Kayiira will go down in the history of Uganda for his advocacy of federalism that would help Ugandans to be proud of what they are and save Ugandans from being arrogant because of what they are.
Please, remember Dr. Lutaakome Andrew Kayiira.
