The Uganda People's Defense Force (UPDF), named so in the 1995 constitution of the Republic of Uganda, from the initial National Resistance Army, a force that saw the final overthrow of dictatorship in Uganda, and has continued to protect the country’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, defeated armed groups such as that of Lakwena, a slave of mysticism as described by the Commander in Chief H.E Yoweri Museveni, the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) of Joseph Kony and the Allied Democratic Force.
