The Senior Presidential Advisor in charge of Special Operations Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba has eulogized the deceased senior UPDF officer Maj Gen Kasirye Ggwanga.
Ggwanga was pronounced dead this Tuesday at Nakasero Hospital in Kampala.
He was admitted at the medical facility about a fortnight ago.
In a tweet, Muhoozi said he recently spoke to Ggwanga, whom he described as a friend.
“Very very sad to hear about the passing of great soldier and a good friend General Kasirye Ggwanga “ said Muhoozi.
”We just spoke weeks ago and he was in a jolly mood. Rest in peace General,” he added.
Earlier in April, the UPDF said Ggwanga had been admitted at senior officers Diagnostic Center in Mbuya for treatment.
The 68-year-old General died at a time Uganda is celebrating Heroes’ Day, an annual commemoration of Ugandans who lost their lives in the 5-year Bush war that brought the current NRM Government to power.
