Ms Alimadi, who was serving as the party’s Interim Coordinator for International Affairs and the Diaspora, was found dead on Monday night in her house in Kiwatule.
Gen Muntu in a statement, revealed that initial findings from the postmortem indicated that she “had two blood clots in the lungs”
Police in Kampala had initially decided to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of the vocal political activist.
In a statement on Tuesday, Kampala Police, judging from her posture, said Alimadi appeared to have been in pain when she died, although there were no signs of struggle on her body.
Gen Muntu while eulogizing the deceased today, termed her as a “bright shining candle” which was “snuffed out.”
“As the party attempts to come to terms with her passing, we are aware of the just how seriously Barbara took her role. In the past several hours, we have received condolence messages from all over the world and testimonies of Ugandans in the diaspora who Barbara had reached and touched in her efforts to unite them around doing all they can to bring about the kind of political leadership our country deserves,” Muntu said.
“The party is coordinating efforts with Barbra’s family and will continue to provide the public with information as it becomes available. For now, her burial is slated for the 2nd of May.”
