Work While Planning for Your Retirement: Col. Katabazi to Officers of Joint Security Forces

While delivering a lecture on “Basic Intelligence and Security Skills” to officers undertaking a joint senior political education and leadership development course at the National Leadership Institution (NALI) Kyakwanzi on Wednesday, April 17, 2024, the Internal Security Organisation (ISO) Deputy Director General (DDG), Col. Emmy Katabazi, urged the officers to plan for their retirement early.

Col. Katabazi urged the officers to focus on growing, being there for their families, and saving for a happy retirement.

“As you work, focus on your families. While in military training, we do not tell you about it. I do not know if the senior officers are advising the juniors on retirement. Every day you get a promotion at work, you are nearing the exit,” Col. Katabazi advised.

He advised the officers to use their institutions to support their staff by enlightening them about saving for their comfortable retirement through projects such as agriculture.

“We have had cases at the organisation where someone retires and later comes back asking to be reinstated. Yes, we might bring you back, but for how long? The time for exit will come. I think we have failed at a strategic level to address that issue. We should use our institutions to support our staff,” the DDG of ISO said.

Col. Katabazi told the officers to broaden their knowledge through reading, researching, and learning because leadership determines a country’s development.

“This is why we keep equipping you with courses so that you are knowledgeable enough. This leadership (regime) studied past mistakes, and it cannot repeat them. The more knowledgeable you are, the easier it is for you to know what you do not know,” Col. Katabazi said.

He implored the officers to be disciplined, especially towards those under their command, patriotic, ideologically clarified, with a desire to learn, consistent morale, and objective ambition. He added that with such principles, the officers will help the common people be transformed.

The two-month course is being attended by officers from the Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces (UPDF), Uganda Police Force (UPF), Uganda Prisons Service (UPS), and Uganda Worldlife Authority (UWA).
