President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who is also the Commander-in-Chief of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF), has passed out 45 Air Force Defense trainees at Kalangalo Marine Training School in Kasanje sub-county, Wakiso District. 

In his address, Gen. Museveni congratulated the Air Force Defense officers for successfully completing their training and urged them to exhibit the same discipline and dedication wherever they will be deployed.

“I want to thank the trainees who have just completed their course. I witnessed their incredible demonstrations, Congratulations.”

Gen. Museveni appealed to the officers to take care of their health because they are assets not only to the nation but to their families too. “Desist from living reckless lifestyles like alcoholism, etc.”

“I greet you all, good people of Kasanje. I want to assure you that this road will be worked on. I am going to talk to the Ministry of Works to come here and do the necessary preparations,” he assured the locals, “and I am personally going to talk to your Member of Parliament to follow up on this matter.”

Present at the pass-out ceremony were the Minister of State for Defense, Hon. Jacob Oboth Oboth; the Deputy Chief of Defense Forces, Lt. Gen. Peter Elwelu; and the Senior Presidential Advisor on Defense and Security, Lt. Gen. (Rtd) Proscovia Nalweyiso, among others.
