The former Security Minister, Gen Elly Tumwine, 68, was last night reportedly fighting for his life at the Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya, where he was airlifted on Tuesday.
Sources familiar with the evacuation said the four-star general, a historical member of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) High Command, looked frail and was wheeled through the airport to take the flight.
His daughter, Cynthia Tumwine, was unavailable to speak to this newspaper as our repeated telephone calls to her went unanswered. She on Saturday on Twitter dismissed rumours that her father had passed on.
