Only invited mourners to attend Gen Tumwine’s mass at Kololo
The Ministry of Defence has announced that the requiem mass for the late Gen. Elly Tumwine will be by invitation only.
It shall begin at 10am, with only invited mourners in attendance after undergoing a Covid-19 test at Kololo, today (Sunday).
“The rest of the mourners willing to join the requiem service are equally welcome and will be duly guided by protocol on the sitting arrangement, in view of the prevailing situation of the Covid-19 pandemic,” a Ministry of Defence statement released on Saturday.
Tumwine, who died of lung cancer at Aga Khan hospital in Nairobi on August 25, has left ambivalence among Ugandans as to how he should be remembered. Some see him as a hero while many, especially on social media, cast him as a villain.
