National Resistance Movement historical member Jack Maumbe Mukhwana has passed on earlier today.
Mukhwana was the first Deputy Minister of Information in the Museveni regime of 1986.
His death was confirmed by the presidential press secretary, Don Wanyama.
“Just learning of the sad news of the demise of Mzee Maumbe Mukhwana,” said Wanyama in a brief post.
“Rest well our elder. You ran your race successfully.”
Maumbe is most remembered for helping guerilla leader Yoweri Museveni and his agents in Mbale in the early 1970s.
