President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who is also the Commander-In-Chief of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) has said the base of the national army is good despite a few challenges.  

He attributed some of the challenges to people whom he said are bringing pollution to the UPDF.

The President gave the warning while addressing hundreds during the 13th Tarehe Sita Thanksgiving prayers at Kololo Independence Grounds yesterday.

At Kololo, President Museveni said UPDF is doing well professionally and assured Ugandans that the few challenges which are faced by the army will be sorted out.  

The president acknowledged that there is some corruption in UPDF now and that army leaders should not tell lies that there’s no corruption.

He said some corruption has crept in like stealing of fuel, some of the money and some other mistakes asking why soldiers should be used in land evictions.

The Chief of Defence Forces (CDF), Gen. Wilson Mbasu Mbadi said the thanksgiving has become an annual celebration anchored on devine reflection as an apex of Tarehe Sita activities which normally take the army to the people.  

He added that through such celebrations, they recognize the central role of God, not only in the matters of the UPDF but also in the affairs of Uganda and the African people.
