Moments after handing over the office of the security Minister to his successor, Maj. Gen. Jim Muhwezi, Gen. Elly Tumwiine has called on the incumbent president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni Tibuhaburwa to unveil his retirement plan or else he has to be cognizant about the fact that this is his final term.
Gen. Tumwiine who lost his UPDF parliamentary slot in his attempt to bounce back to the eleventh parliament has been reduced to a mere presidential advisor. This makes a man of his bush war calibre inferior to the young ministers yet he sacrificed a full eye for the guerrilla struggle. It is said that the first bullet to be fired injured Gen. Tumwiine and left him partially blind.
Tumwiine on Wednesday took to Twitter to fire retirement shots at Gen. Museveni who he says has plundered the nation beyond repair.
Pundits say Tumwiine may be looking for his way to the grave as case has been with defiant UPDF high command soldiers like Brig. Nobel Mayombo, Maj. Gen. James Kazini, Gen. Aronda Nyakairima who died mysteriously. Lately Gen. Katumba Wamala who is one of the living historicals also survived an assassination attempt this very month at the young NRM generation struggles to reclaim power from the old guard.
