Anxiety has engulfed the people of Rwenzururu kingdom after receiving scanty information that one of the deadly Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces ‘UPDF’ commander for Land Forces Lt. Gen Peter Elwelu has been attacked by a strange yet to be known disease.
According to information that TheCapital Times has exclusively ascertained from UPDF’s land forces headquarters in Bombo, Gen. Elwelu has been bedridden for two weeks with a yet to be identified mental illness which harbored him from accurately doing his daily forces work.
We’ve further learnt that a team of doctors from UPDF and experts from Butabika Mental Hospital have been secretly treating Gen. Elwelu for the past one week at his private residence in Bombo.
Following the attack, all officers and other daily visitors have been blocked by UPDF from accessing him until he mentaly stablise.
’’He begun with severe headache, later he nausea and started shouting and singing alone in Office. When the situation became tense, his wife informed his seniors that is the Commander in Chief Gen. David Muhoozi and Deputy CDF Gen. Wilson Mbadi who with immediate effect assigned a special medical team to work on him before his mental health could get out of hand,” a family member said.
A family member further confirmed to us that UPDF Medical team has managed to secure one of the most expensive and specialized mental drugs from Germany which has been injected into Gen. Elwelu’s blood.
Gen. Elwelu became popular in 2016 November 27-28 when he led the army attack on the Rwenzururu king’s palace in In the aftermath of the killings, he said he did not regret anything, referring to some of the people who had died in the exchange, particularly the Rwenzururu royal guards, as “terrorists.”
In March, Human Rights Watch issued a critical report that blamed government security forces’ highhandedness for the massive killings.
“The assault on the palace in Kasese, which killed more people than any single event since the height of the war in Northern Uganda over a decade ago, should not be swept under the carpet,” said Maria Burnett, associate Africa director at Human Rights Watch, in a statement that accompanied the release of the report.
“People in Kasese are still looking for their family members, including children, and they deserve answers and justice for these gruesome killings.”
But later, Government of Uganda through spokesperson Ofwono Opondo dismissed the report.
Last year, Lt Gen. Peter Elwelu built a worship centre at his home in Anyara sub-county, Kalaki district. The complex, which he named ‘House of the Almighty Father in Heaven Elohim’, is attached to his family house. It was commissioned by President Yoweri Museveni .
Ever since the attack of Charles Wesley Mumbere’s palace attack, People of Kasese and other surrounding areas wish, Gen. Elwelu nothing good.
