84 recruited into UPDF
KABALE
A total of 84 people in the district were recruited into the UPDF. The recruitment team chief, Lt. Col. Francis Takiirwa, said over 200 youth from Kabale and Kanungu districts turned up to join the army but only 84 were successful. He said some were rejected because they had diseases, while others had wives who would deter their training. Takiirwa said it was unfortunate that only two women were part of the 84. He said the army wanted women to compete with men in the exercise.

Alfred Rwemereza, the former chairman of Bukongoro Primary School, said parents who did not want to pay any money were not interested in educating their children.
