Gen. Tumwine, one of the tactically fierce commandos who apparently fired the first shot as Sevo and his trusted men moved to liberate this country in 1986, worked hard and served immaculately, so he had enjoyed the fruits of his sweat. Indeed, at the time of his death, he was sleeping like an emperor! Eli Tumwine’s mansion. The said state of the art palace is located in Rwemikoma in Kiruhura District. Unlike the usual cribs you may know, this house’s architectural plan and structure resembles a grass thatched house, but built in a modern way. Safe to say, Tumwine’s mansion is artistically created, something that emphasises his passion for art. During the housewarming party, the singing General thanked God for everything he had done for him including guiding him through life’s challenges...

Muleya began his appearance before COSASE by presenting documents related to the circumstances surrounding...
