It’s with deep regret to announce the sudden death and loss of a fallen soldier General Elly Tumwine that was confirmed on tweeter.
His cause of death was lung cancer that he had been battling with for a while until his last breath yesterday at 5 am at the Agha khan Hospital in Nairobi.
General Elly Tumwine was a Ugandan military officer, professional artist, and educator. He served Security Minister in the Cabinet of Uganda, from 2019 to 2021. It was through this that he lost his eye fighting for his country.
The burial dates for the general haven’t been mentioned. However this will be communicated by the government as soon as possible. The family looks forward to receiving the body tomorrow as burial preparations go underway.
May His Soul Rest In Peace!
