The UPDF Spokesman however said that although the circumstances under which this incident was done are not yet clear, the UPDF  regrets this gross act of indiscipline that is not characteristic of the UPDF as a people’s army.

“We wish to restate that discipline remains a core value and bedrock on which the UPDF was founded and anyone who deviates from this will always be punished according to the established laws” Brigadier Karemire said.

He cited the examples to prove to prove his point with the incident in Kasese where a soldier  was sentenced to 35 years imprisonment and an LDU personnel was yesterday sentenced to life imprisonment all because of unprofessional conduct.

 Private Odeke Simon

 Private Musundi Caroline and 

 Private Okello Isaac

“The UPDF wishes to reiterate its full commitment and loyalty to the people of Uganda and will always remain subordinate to the civilian authority as provided for under Article 208 of the Constitution” Brig Karemire said.

He added that there is no need to lose heart over these incidents because a comprehensive review of these deployments to enforce anti Coronavirys measures is soon to take place and the general public should expect better results.
