BE disciplined, UPDF officers and Amuka militias have been told.
The Chief of staff of the Land Forces, Brig. Geoffrey Muheesi, said, â€œWe are on a sub-contract headed by President Museveni, the commander-in-chief. We shall not tolerate indiscipline in the army. If you cannot perform well, we shall axe you and create room for disciplined and competent officers.â€
He was passing out 242 senior and junior UPDF non-commissioned officers and Amuka militia commanders at the 5th Division headquarters in Acolpii, Pader district last week. The officers completed a three-month military and political course.
We are not grooming you to only command but also to lead the society. We shall continue to mould you to be good leaders,â€ he added.
He said the Government was working on the welfare of the army as a top priority so that the soldiers benefit and protect the sovereignty of the country.
â€œThe future is going to be tough because the war in northern Uganda is ending. There is going to be competitive command after the war. If you donâ€™t perform well, you will be left out. We need officers who are bold and innovative,â€ Muheesi added.
Capt. Anech Mubangizi said the 183 Amuka militias would help in commanding platoon units.
