Here is Gen Tumwine’s multibillion mansion he leaves behind

In 2018, one of Uganda People’s Defense Force (UPDF) commanders, Gen. Eli Tumwine (now deceased) left Netizens in awe, when photos of one his multi-billion mansions hit the internet streets.

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!

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. He noted that he used his life savings to create a place to rest from the dusty streets of Kampala.

The ex-security Minister breathed his last today aged 68, at the Aga Khan Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya, where he was airlifted two weeks ago.

Gen Tumwine’s health had been a subject of public speculation for a while, even when he was still a Cabinet minister.

Relatives and associates reported that the Bush War general collapsed at the marriage ceremony of a prominent female journalist last month, and was later booked at Nakasero Hospital in Kampala.
