It’s still a sombre mood in the country especially in the NRM corridors of power and the UPDF following the demise of Gen Elly Tumwine who was set to retire from the army later this year.
Tumwine who was briefly admitted at Nakasero hospital but later airlifted to Nairobi for better medication died today in the morning aged 68.
It has however been revealed that the tough speaking army boss died of lung cancer which he has been battling for quite some time.
Countrymen and Countrywomen, especially the NRM- NRA- UPDF fraternity.
With deep sorrow, I announce the death of General Elly Tumwiine which occurred at 5:46am this morning in Nairobi, from lung cancer.
