‘Major General Bamuze deserves a decent burial’ – West Nile Leaders

Major General Bamuze

Major General Ali Abdalaman Bamuze

Leaders from west Nile demand for a state burial for Major General Ali Abdalaman   Bamuze who passed on Sunday last week. Addressing the press at parliament one of the members of parliament from west Nile and member of the organizing committee for the burial Hassan Kaps Fungaroo says the late deserves a decent burial, depending on his contribution towards peace and security in the country.
Fungaroo however says that Bamuze died as an unhappy man because Government did not fulfill some of the commitments in the agreement that was made when he came out of the bush.
Maj Gen Ali Bamuze was the former commander of the Uganda National Rescue Front (UNRF) II rebel group and
he died last evening after collapsing at J&M Airport Road Hotel. He will be laid to rest on October 7, 2015 at his ancestral home in Aringa County, Yumbe District.


Reports on Social Media and in the Monitor Newspaper under the headline “Bamuze collapses, dies”  quoted a relative as having said the fallen Major General Ali Bamuze missed a step, fell and vomited blood before collapsing in State House, Entebbe.

A statement was circulated noting that Gen. Bamuze had no scheduled appointment and was not anywhere near State House and could therefore not have collapsed there. Gen. Bamuze was however part of the UPDF officers who attended an Operation Wealth Creation meeting organized by the Commander of Defence Forces (CDF) Gen. Wamala at J&M Hotel in Bwebajja along Entebbe Road. The meeting was addressed by President Yoweri Museveni. Gen. Bamuze collapsed shortly after the President had left and was immediately rushed to Nakasero Hospital. He was pronounced dead on arrival.

The statement went ahead to note that the UPDF who are handling this matter will brief the press on the postmortem report at an appropriate time.
