“Aronda survived AIDS and him with few others helped us start afresh and rebuilt the army and the nation. He died on plane coming from South Korea. We are busy finding cause of problem, but that will not bring him back. When we came from the bush, many died of AIDS, Aronda was disciplined, and he survived. My immediate thinking was… maybe it was an accident. I didn’t know he had any medical problem,”M7 said.
