Former Attorney General Peter Nyombi has died at the age of 64, according to reports yet to be officially confirmed.
For now, details about his death are scant. But we have learnt that he had hypertension and succumbed to heart failure at a clinic in Kampala Sunday evening.
Having replaced Kiddu Makubuya, Nyombi served as Government’s main legal advisor for nearly four years, from May 2011 until March 2015.
A cabinet reshuffle saw him replaced by Fred Ruhindi, who would also be dropped a year later to give way for William Byaruhanga, the current Attorney General.
Nyombi also served as MP for Buruuli County in Nakasongola district, central Uganda.
