With her face registering glee, Lukiah Mulumba had this to say.
“Please join my sickle family and l as we celebrate “OUR” promotion to Lieutenant Colonel in the Air Force. I am grateful for the love, support and guidance along the way. Pinned on by my daughter Aliah and Mark. Much love to you my SICKLE family.”

Uganda Today joins all other well wishers to unreservedly and wholeheartedly wish Lieutenant Lukiah Mulumba this deserved promotion.
