Security at the home of Gen Elly Tumwine in Mukuru Village, Rwemikoma Sub-county, Kazo District, has been tightened ahead of his burial today.
By yesterday, mourners were pouring in from different directions to pay their last respects as burial preparations were being coordinated by both the government, the army and family members.
Mourners are subjected to four check points manned by the Uganda people’s defence Forces (UPDF) and police upon arrival.

“We have been instructed to establish four check points from the main road to the deceased’s home for security purposes,” a UDPF officer, who did not want to be named, said.
