President Yoweri Museveni has over the weekend chaired meetings of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF’s) highest organs – the High Command and Army Council.
On Sunday, Museveni posted that he chaired both the UPDF High Command and the Army Council, the latter being the military’s supreme decision-making, at State House Entebbe.
“The deliberations focused on the current security situation in the country and the meetings expressed satisfaction with the prevailing peace,” he said.
“They noted the need for the UPDF to continue supporting other security agencies when called upon to fight criminality.”
He also said that deliberations also focused issues of soldiers’ welfare.
