Museveni Urges More Educated People to Join Army

President Yoweri Museveni.

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has commended the educated people for improving the quality of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces.

The President made the remarks at State House-Entebbe while delivering a lecture of opportunity to a group of 89 scientists who were taken through a two-month basic military training at Sera-Kasenyi Training School last year.

These included; computer scientists, electrical engineers, Information Technology professionals, Software engineers, Telecom engineers, mechanical engineers, and civil engineers, among others.

Out of the 89 scientists, 32 expressed willingness to join the army and continue with the military training.

Museveni informed the scientists that in the past, the army was for the illiterate people, and it could not perform, citing it as one of the reasons why the armies of Idi Amin and the Uganda National Liberation Army failed.

Museveni ordered the Deputy Commander of the Special Forces Command Brig. Gen. Charity Bainababo to ensure that the scientists who are not joining the army are recruited into other science areas.
