Embattled former Coordinator of Intelligence Services, Gen David Sejusa has paid glowing tribute to fallen General Court Martial Chairman, Maj. Gen Levi Karuhanga.
Maj Gen Karuhanga died yesterday after a short illness.
Gen. Sejusa who says he had a sound working relationship with the late Karuhanga, has praised him as a man of high ethical and moral values.
At the time of his death, the late Karuhanga was handling a case against Gen David Sejusa in which he is accused of among other offenses; being absent from duty without permission.
The Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission for Somalia and the entire AMISOM family has described the death of Major General Levi Karuhanga, as a great blow to the region’s security forces.
In a press statement issued on Friday afternoon, Ambassador Francisco Madeira says Maj Gen. Karuhanga, the first Force Commander of AMISOM shaped the way the ensuing commanders have been able to fulfill their duties.
He inspired AMISOM’s decisive move towards defeating Al-Shabaab and liberating the city of Mogadishu.
He adds that subsequent commanders have since been taking Gen. Levi Karuhanga’s method of work as a reference point in their operations.
Ambassador Madeira says General Karuhanga’s contribution to the stabilisation of Somalia is highly commendable and will always be a reference point and source of inspiration.
Meanwhile, the UPDF spokesperson Lt Col Paddy Ankunda tells K-FM that a detailed funeral program will be made public this afternoon.
