The Chief of Defense Forces, Gen. Katumba Wamala, on Saturday cautioned UPDF soldiers in Battle Group 16 and the UN Guard Unit who are flying to Somalia Monday against engaging in “any relationship whatsoever” with Somali women.


Katumba Wamala who replaced Aronda Nyakairima in 2013 as CDF cautioned male UPDF soldiers not to engage in any relationship, including being intimate with Somali women, as the move could jeopardize the mission.
