The Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) has refuted claims that its officer, Commander of Land Forces Lt. Gen Peter Elwelu was attacked by a strange disease which has made him insane.

According to a news website called ‘The Capital Times’, General Elwelu was attacked by a disease that was yet to be identified two weeks back and that he had been bedridden and also run mad in the process.

Additional reports suggested that Gen. Elwelu was secretly receiving treatment from UPDF doctors and experts from Butabika Mental Hospital at his residence in Bombo.

Refuting the claims on his Twitter handle, UPDF spokesperson Brig. Richard Karemire said that the reports have no truth in them.
