PRESIDENT Yoweri Museveni will soon launch a grand plan called the Strategic Defence Review (SDR) to re-assess Uganda’s security interests and to professionalise the Uganda Peoples Defence Forces and other armed forces. Alfred Wasike writes that defence minister Amama Mbabazi said this during the 21st Tarehe Sita celebrations at the Army headquarters, Bombo. Museveni officiated at the function in which there was an exhibition of military equipment. This year’s theme is “Rebirth of the UPDF: Retracing our steps as we professionalise.” “The rationale is to re-assess Uganda’s central security interests and how the roles, missions and capabilities of the armed forces should be adjusted to meet them,” Mbabazi said. He said the aim was to make the UPDF and their supporting structures modern and professional. Ends
