The Ugandan armymen and women had been away for over a year on a Somalia mission.

NAKASEKE - A contingent of 1,442 UPDF soldiers returned home from a peace-keeping mission in Somalia.

They were welcomed by the Chief of Defence Forces (CDF) Gen. Katumba Wamala and the commander of land forces Maj. Gen. David Muhoozi at Peace Support Operation Training Centre in Singo, Nakaseke district.

The soldiers had been away for 13 months.

Gen. Wamala advised the soldiers to maintain discipline as they join their respective communities for a one-month leave and invest their money in meaningful ventures.

"Don't buy cars, they will be a liability to you. Instead at least build a two-bedroom house and a bathroom.”

The returning soldiers will have a one-month leave. During the ceremony, they loosened up a bit, thanks to some groovy music

 

 

 

Many showed how flexible they are and how rubber-like their waists and legs can get

 

 

 

But the one person who stole the show in the flexibility department was Issa Bukenya, whose impressively loose limbs could send chills down your spine!
