“Urge you to ensure and adhere to the UPDF Cardinal code of conduct and maintain discipline for proper success of this assessment field internship program as the institution sharpens your military career,” Brig.Gen. Busizoori said.

He added that training and career progression contain proper selection, which is predetermined and must be maintained by the officer cadets as the end users. He advised them to observe and respect the human rights of civilians and militants wherever they will operate.
