National Resistance Army-NRA hero Retired Colonel Ahmed Kashilingi is dead.

One of his brothers, Tanazio Biryabarema, says that Kashilingi died Wednesday night after a short illness. 
Kashilingi comes from Rubabo in Rukungiri.

As R0-040, Kashilingi was one of the senior commanders of the NRA who captured Kampala in 1986. 
Col. Ahmed Kashilingi, joined the NRA bush-war in 1981. Alongside Mugisha Muntu, Joram Mugume, Ivan Koreta, Jim Muhwezi, Kahinda Otafiire, Steven Kashaka, Pecos Kuteesa, Julius Chihandae and Peter Kerim; he is listed in the UPDF Act as one of the 15 senior officers as at January 1986.

Unlike some of the senior commanders, Kashillingi hasn’t played many major roles in the government of President, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who has been in power now for 37 years

Being one of the few highly trained soldiers, Kashilingi was appointed Director of Records after the fall of Kampala.

He shortly fell out with the new regime and fled into exile in Zaire .

He was finally arrested charged with treason and misprision of treason at Mengo Magistrates Court and jailed in Luzira from 1991 to 1995. His trial delayed because most of the time the government claimed that its witnesses were abroad. His lawyers; Remmy Kasule and Edward Muguluma eventually won the case on February 17, 1995
