She further said that he was a loyal cadre of the NRM who often gave a blind eye to the injustices of his party.
Byanyima also said that she disagreed with Tumwine many times but never she did doubt his intentions.
She then went ahead to send her condolences to the late’s family adding that she applauds him for contributing to the struggle of democracy in the country a fight that is still on going.
