The rest have O’ and A level certificates. “It is good to have educated people in the army, they learn quickly. We are building a professional army,” remarked President Museveni.
The President of Uganda thanked UPDF instructors for training these soldiers. “I have seen improvement in skills. We will need to sit together and add more items on the syllabus,” President Museveni noted.
The commander in Chief also commissioned Infrastructure development works at the training school. I am happy that infrastructure has improved in other training schools like Singo, Karama and other army establishments around the country. I once again congratulate the graduates and the UPDF leadership,” noted an impressed president Museveni.
