The Uganda Peoples Defense Force and the family of the former army commander Gen Elly Tumwine have taken to social media to express dismay at the manner in which a section of users are spreading rumors of the death of the Army strongman.
The former minister was airlifted to Nairobi for treatment in a critical phase. According to sources, he is battling cancer.
However, over the weekend, social media was awash with news announcing his death while a section of other users celebrated his demise.
Gen Tumwine’s daughter Cynthia Tumwine took to social media to lambast those jubilating.
“Adversity will teach you so much about human nature. That said I wouldn’t wish the last 24 hours on anyone. Time travel needs to undo social media because it’s currently in the pits. God is faithful regardless though We give him praise,” she tweeted.
