President Yoweri Museveni thanked and praised the work done by the Special Forces Command during a recent ceremony. The unit is a part of the Uganda People’s Defense Forces that protect installations and him and his family. Museveni commented on how he was proud of the skills the unit learned by participating in numerous courses and that units such as this one have ensured the survival of the country. “The army has big capacity, but Special Forces create professional capacity in operating in small units and doing things that cannot be done in a regular way,” he commented. Museveni also spoke on how they wouldn’t have been able to defeat the rebel group Allied Democratic Forces without the army and special forces.
