The Uganda peoples defence forces (UPDF) has on Thursday retired a total of 14 General officers, 604 senior and junior officers.
Brig Gen Flavia Byekwaso, Army Spokesperson said that the retirement ceremony for the Generals will be held at State House Entebbe.
Other retirees, according to her, the ceremonies will be in their respective service headquarters, formations and units.
“The MoDVA/UPDF recognizes their commitment, service, selflessness and dedication to offering security service to the country at a time where many shunned joining the liberation struggle in favor of maintaining the status quo,” she said in a statement.
“Because of their service, the country’s course of history has been overturned across all spectrum, from an almost total shutdown to a now robust and sound economy with guaranteed peace and stability in the entire country.”
“The UPDF family congratulates the retirees for successfully completing their active duty in the forces.”
