UPDF retires three Generals after 35 years of dignified service

KAMPALA- Three Generals have retired from active service in Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces after more than 35 years of dignified service.

Maj Gen Eric Mukasa (RIP) represented by the family, Brig Gen Tumusiime Nyakaitana and Brig Gen Geoffrey Mujuni, were today honorably discharged.

The Chief of Defence Forces Gen David Muhoozi in his remarks as he officiated the retirement ceremony at the Ministry of Defence and Veteran Affairs headquarters in Mbuya, congratulated the officers for making it to the end, saying that their journey has been long and remarkable in terms of service, growth and professionalism.

He told them; “we value your service, we cherish you and are here to send you off honorably since we have learnt many life changing lessons through your service,” He added that they have made a monumental and significant contribution to the growth of UPDF and it was therefore befitting that they were being sent off with dignity. 

He remarked that there is time for everything and therefore urged them to stay in touch with the leadership and keep relevant to both the army and country.

“Don’t switch off. You still carry our image and we expect discipline and leadership from you. Be our ambassadors and remain useful to your families,” he appealed to them.

While speaking on behalf of retirees, Brig Gen (Rtd) Geoffrey Mujuni thanked the almighty God for helping them to serve with dignity, noting that time has now come for them to enjoy the fruits of the peace that they have fought for. “Time has come for us to go and relax a bit but we shall keep our ears on the ground against anybody who interferes with the peace,” Brig Mujuni emphasized. 

 He further lauded their families for the patience they exercised over year while they were busy on military duty. Finally he asked those remaining in the service to jealously guard the unity of the country.

The ceremony was attended by the Joint Chief of Staff Lt Gen Joseph Musanyufu, the Chief of Personnel and Administration Maj Gen George Igumba and the Commissioner Human Resource Mr Cox Anguzo among other senior leaders.
