During his speech at the Uganda Military Academy in Kabamba, Chief of Defence Forces Gen. Wilson Mbadi advised trainees to live a healthy lifestyle and keep in good shape to prolong their service.

This was during the closure of the 14-day exercise field training exercise code named “Uongonzi Bora”, on August 11, 2023, at the Uganda Military Academy in Mubende district. It combined intake 02 of the 3-year Cadet Programme and intake 06 of the Professional Cadets.

Mbadi further urged the Officer Cadets to embrace and readily avail themselves for progressive training.

“Avail yourselves for progressive training as a means of achieving proficiency of the Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces,” said Gen. Mbadi

The Commandant, Uganda Military Academy Col. Wycliffe Keita, applauded the trainees for exhibiting good discipline during both the field exercise and throughout the course and urged them to maintain it.

The objectives of the final exercise were to assess trainees’ cooperation, initiative and physical fitness, to introduce trainees to combined arms elements in an operation, enable trainees’ practice in command and control, and to enhance trainees’ responses to combat challenges.

The function was also attended by UPDF Chief of Training and Recruitment, Brig. Gen. Mathew Gureme, administrators and instructors of Uganda Military Academy, and UPDF senior officers.
