The Commander of Land Forces of UPDF Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba has promised to always support young people foster their careers.
Gen. Kainerugaba, who is also the presidential adviser on Special Operations, was Sunday reminiscing about his military career in which he faced sabotage that he dubbed as "backward culture".
"In my military career I have faced the most resistance from some of my elders. People who should have been supporting me, were fighting me all the time. I can only describe that as backward culture," he tweeted, adding: "I promise to always support the young people of Uganda!"
The UPDF chief whose military career spans over two decades has served the forces in different capacities, including his preeminent role in building the Special Forces Command (SFC).
With training from illustrious military schools in countries like South Africa, Egypt and USA, Gen. Kainerugaba has been involved in and commanded the UPDF as it battled terrorist groups like the Al Shabaab, ADF, and other violent organisations that have made attempts at destabilising Uganda.
