Maj. Gen. Eric Mukasa, the chief of staff of the Reserve Forces in the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF), has died.
Gen. Mukasa breathed his last Friday morning at Nakasero Hospital, according to the UPDF spokesperson Brig. Richard Karemire.
“We have lost yet another gallant general officer… RIP,” Brig. Karemire said.
This week another UPDF general, Brig. Gen Jackson Bell Tushabe, one of the National Resistance Army (now Uganda People’s Defence Forces – UPDF) daredevil fighters also died.
The one-star general, who rose to fame mostly due to his love for football, died at Nakasero hospital this week.
Tushabe was a staunch supporter of Express Football Club and he held several positions in the club. He was also the patron of Victor Football Club.
Last month, June, another Gen, Maverick Maj. Gen. (rtd) Kasirye Ggwanga, died. Like Tushabe, Ggwanga also died at Nakasero hospital on June 9.
Ggwanga, 68, died after a successful operation to remove a blood clot in one of the vessels in his head. Earlier, he had been admitted at Mbuya military hospital
