Dr. Kizza Besigye has revealed how painful Lt Col Ahmad Kashillingi’s final years of life were.

According to Besigye one day Kashilling came to him in need of 50k for medicine

Lt Col A Kashilling, the Gen that never became, has departed. His last years have been very painful- deserted by his comrades & his family!

He told me painful stories fairly recently. He came on a Bodaboda to Nsambya, where I was. Most urgently, he needed 50K for medicine! Sad.

Kashillingi was born on 1st January, 1949 and died on 3rd November, 2022. He was a key NRA commander during the five-year NRA Bush War.

He joined the army on October 21, 1967 and was the commander of the 5th battalion under NRA that captured the strategic Katonga Bridge on Masaka-Mbarara Road. His battalion also blocked Entebbe Road during the final onslaught on Kampala in 1986. But he was later arrested and charged with treason in 1992.
