Brig. Gen. Busizoori made these remarks while addressing the sixty-seven (67) officer cadets, including thirteen (13) females from Uganda Military Academy – Kabamba (UMAK), who reported to the 3rd Division Headquarters, Mororto Army Barracks, to undertake a field operation internship program.

“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.

According to Col. Santos M. Tumuranzye, the Chief Instructor in Charge of Academics, the cadets are at the climax of their second year and are ready to undergo a two-month field internship, after which they will return to the academy to commence the third and final year. He thanked the Division leadership for accepting to host a field program that will enhance cadets’ in-depth understanding of good operational and administrative practices.

Upon successful completion of the three years military Officer Cadet Course and commission, the trainees are expected to graduate with Bachelors Degree in Defence Studies.
