He would later retreat to Ggaba where he joined fishing.

Bell became a Colonel in the late 80s and remained at that rank for so long that some of his neighbours thought Col Bell was his name.

He has been ill for more than 15 years.

His body has been taken to Bombo army barracks as his family and UPDF draw burial arrangements that will take place in Kafunjo,Bubaare, Kashari.

May his soul rest in eternal peace.
