Medal to a murderer: Is it by Impunity, a sign of how valueless medals are or Museveni is intentionally instigating hatred between Northerners and Westerners Elwelu brutally killed?
Among the 143 beneficiaries, included the Land Forces Commander Maj. Gen Elwelu.
Before the full scale deployment, in 2005 he was among the select group of officers alongside (now) Gen Kale Kayihura, and Brig Dick Olum (current 3rd Division commanding officer) whom President Museveni quietly dispatched to Baidoa, capital of Somalia’s southwestern Bay region, to study the security and political situation.
He returned from Somalia in December 2008, and was deployed as 3rd Division UPDF commander in the Eastern/Karamoja region that was tasked to disarm marauding warriors and cattle rustlers through thick and thin.
From there in June 2013, he was tapped as commander of the Western-Uganda based 2nd Division taking over from Col. Fred Rugadya Akiiki, the deputy division commander, charged with shielding the area from any potential ADF threat.
