H.E The President and CiC Gen. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has confirmed the promotion of 40 UPDF Personnel that includes Generals and Senior Officers. Congratulations to them.
CiC H.E Gen. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has appointed Linda Nabusayi as the new Senior Presidential Press Secretary.
The position is set to fall vacant after its holder, Don Wanyama was recently appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Vision Group.
Wanyama still has up to April 30 in his role as the Senior Presidential Press Secretary.
However, we learnt that H.E Gen. Museveni has elevated Nabusayi to take up the position that will soon fall vacant as his advisor on media.
Nabusayi confirmed the development in an interview on telephone call.
“It is true that I have been promoted. I thank the president for the confidence he has in me,” she said on phone.
Nabusayi was in 2015 appointed as the Presidential Press Secretary to replace Tamale Mirundi. Until that point, she had served as deputy press secretary.
The latest development and appointment by H.E Gen. Museveni will leave many who had hoped to fill Wanyama’s position disappointed.
Congratulations daughter of Elgon. May your New journey in office be blessed. For God my Country 🇺🇬
The African Union Mission in Somalia AMISOM has awarded medals and certificates to Ugandan soldiers for their contribution in the ongoing peacebuilding process in Somalia.
The soldiers, from Battle Group 29, were awarded medals at a ceremony presided over by the AMISOM Force Commander, Lt. Gen. Diomede Ndegeya and attended by senior AMISOM military officers and the Contingent Commander of Ugandan troops in Somalia, Brig. Gen. Don William Nabasa.
The soldiers who deployed to the mission in December 2019 under the command of Col. Edward Kaddu, are due to rotate out of the mission, having completed their tour of duty and will be replaced by Battle Group 32, commanded by Col. Jonathan Ojok Ochom.
Lt. Gen. Ndegeya praised the soldiers, who were tasked with securing the coastal town of Barawe and the surrounding areas, for their steadfastness in the implementation of the mission’s mandate.
“UPDF Battle Group 29 secured the airfield of Barawe, protected key population centres especially Embresso and Barawe towns, mentored Somali National Army through joint operations and training, and secured main supply routes,” said Lt. Gen. Diomede Ndegeya. Present at the function was the AMISOM Deputy Force Commander in charge Operations and Plans, Maj. Gen. William Kitsao Shume.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only a section of the soldiers took part in the symbolic event held at the Uganda contingent headquarters in Mogadishu, Somalia on Saturday.
Lt. Gen. Ndegeya particularly paid glowing tribute to soldiers who lost their lives in the line of duty for their resilience and unwavering courage, to ensure that peace and stability returns to Somalia.
“Allow me to pay special tribute to our gallant soldiers who lost their lives in their efforts to help pacify Somalia. Their lives were not lost in vain since remarkable stability has been realized in this country said Lt. Gen Ndegeya. Bravo our men and women in uniform. God's protection upon you and your families

H.E President YK Museveni Commissions SFC headquarters.
06 Nov 2020
H.E the President of the republic of Uganda and Commander-in-Chief of the Uganda Peoples' Defence Forces (UPDF) Gen YK Museveni has officiated at the opening of the newly constructed Special Forces Command (SFC) headquarters in Entebbe, Wakiso district.
The president congratulated the SFC Construction Regiment for efficiently using their direct labor to construct military installations all over the country, adding that such ventures omit the exorbitant fees and time wastage from contractors. "Since man power is available from soldiers, you only remain with the cost of buying materials to come up with such big structures," he said.
The President further encouraged the military to use their own labor when constructing more housing units for soldiers to cater for confidentiality and capacity building. He added that soldiers are supposed to stay together such that in case of an emergency they can collectively rectify the situation.
President Museveni, however, warned people who encroach on army land to desist from the vice, saying responsible authorities should not tolerate such bad conduct.
The Minister of Defence and Veteran Affairs Hon Adolf Mwesige commended the strategic guidance from President Museveni on the issue of building UPDFs capacity to handle its own challenges. He said such achievements(like the SFC headquarters), inspire soldiers and other Government Ministries Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to construct infrastructure using the available resources.
Speaking at the same function, the UPDF Deputy Chief of Defence Forces Lt Gen Wilson Mbadi, on behalf of the Chief of Defence Forces Gen David Muhoozi, noted that translating direct labor and decentralization can deliver huge projects with abundant benefits, in terms of; building capacity, enhancing transparency, ensuring confidentiality and reducing costs.
Maj Gen James Birungi, the SFC Commander lauded the support from the UPDF leadership
Yoweri Kaguta Museveni
Over this weekend, at State House Entebbe, I have chaired both the UPDF High Command and the Army Council, the latter being the military's supreme decision-making organ.
The deliberations focused on the current security situation in the country and the meetings expressed satisfaction with the prevailing peace. They noted the need for the UPDF to continue supporting other security agencies when called upon to fight criminality.
We also discussed issues of soldiers' welfare and I officiated at the commissioning of two officer cadets; Ignatius Taremwa and Teddy Namyalo, who recently completed training abroad.
SERVING IN THE UPDF IS A RARE OPPORTUNITY– GEN MUSEVENI
The President of the Republic of Uganda and Commander-in-Chief of UPDF Gen Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has told 203 newly commissioned Ugandan Officers that they should consider themselves fortunate to be part of the officer corps in a force that has made significant contribution to the wellbeing of their motherland and the region.
“Consider being commissioned as officers of the UPDF as a very rear opportunity. UPDF is a force that was historically needed in Uganda, otherwise Uganda would have by now disintegrated. UPDF was able to reverse the declining Uganda because of our Ideology, strategy and discipline. Without any money we were able to build a very strong force which saved Uganda and contributed to regional peace. Therefore, for you to be a part of this is a very great honor and you should not take it lightly or misuse your chances", said President Museveni.
The President was at Uganda Military Academy- Kabamba in Mubende Distric where the cadets had completed a year- long course. Twenty-four of the Commissioned Officers were females and another 20 Somali Nationals under a bilateral arrangement between Uganda and Somalia. Four medical doctors were commissioned to the rank of Captain and the rest Second Lieutenants.
The President reminded the newly commissioned Officers that they are members of a liberation army and so should clearly differentiate themselves from the traditional tribal and colonial armies that did not serve the interest of the people.
“Always be ready to defend Uganda’s democracy, champion patriotism and nationalism on top of embracing and working for Pan-Africanism and socio-economic transformation of our society,” he said.He further urged them that time allowing ,they should engage in wealth creation activities.
The President advised parents not to expect much from the new officers but rather support them in establishing themselves.
He told the officers to remain focused on their careers, guard against dangers such as HIV in order to be successful in their lives. The president noted that there are many new chances available in the UPDF that were not there a few decades ago. He cited the example of Uganda Military Academy that will from this year offer a 3 year- degree program and soon receive facilities such as additional dormitories to facilitate training.
“In the past, some of us had to go to Mozambique to get knowledge whereas presently knowledge is free here,” he emphasized.
In his remarks, the UPDF Deputy Chief of Defence Forces Lt Gen Wilson Mbadi who represented the Chief of Defence Forces Gen David Muhoozi, congratulated the officers upon successful completion of a hectic course but cautioned them against seeking for presumably comfortable deployments. He said the officers should mentally prepare themselves to serve anywhere because their recruitment was based on demand to fill some command positions.
Gen Mbadi further advised them to embrace the spirit of hard work like their predecessors, continuous training, exercise a high degree of discipline and patriotism. He said the Officers should carry out all their assignments with diligence, enthusiasm and maintain good relationship with wanainchi
The Commandant Brig. Charles Byaruhanga said that the objectives of the training where successfully achieved and that the Officers were equipped with knowledge, skills and UPDF tradition.He however cautioned them to put into practice what they learnt, pay allegiance and never shame the country.
Four Officers received awards for excelling during the one-year course O/Cadet Abdul Wahab Harun was best overall student, O/Cadet Sumaya Nangobi best in class,O/Cadet Mutegeki Clovis best in the field, O/Cadet Mugarura John best in discipline, while O/Cadet Abdullai Ahmed Diiri was the best fraternal student .

Minister of State for Kampala Capital City Authority Ms Benna Namugwanya, a delegation from the Federal Government of Somalia led by the Somalia National Army Deputy Commander Land Forces Brig Abdi Abdullahi Shire, the UPDF Deputy Commander Land forces Maj. Gen. Sam Kavuma,the Deputy Commander Airforces Maj Gen.
