Don’t Drag CMI In Bobi Wine Issues, Leave Them To Do Their Work: UPDF Warns On Rumours That CMI Boss Kandiho Is Behind Bobi Woes

Published

The Uganda People’s Defence Forces spokesperson has refuted social media allegations that the head of Chieftancy for Military Intelligence (CMI), Brig. Gen. Abel Kadiho masterminded the arrest and detention of Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Ssetamu as well as blocking his concerts.

“The UPDF takes exception to a very abusive article carried on social media platform of “Free Uganda” on 29 April 2019 directed at the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence led by Brig Gen Abel Kandiho.

We wish to state that It is not true that the CMI operates safe houses anywhere. Issues behind the current appearance of Hon Robert Kyagulanyi before the court have been handled by the Uganda Police Force and the office of the Director of Public Prosecution. The CMI has no role to play and should therefore not be dragged into it.

As a whole, the UPDF leadership remains very satisfied and has full confidence in the CMI. The officers and men have continued to perform their duties to execute UPDF core functions as provided under the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda. They have contributed a lot towards the current peace and security in the Country.

Therefore, no amount of bad mouthing and propaganda will deter them from protecting the people and our country Uganda,” the army claimed on its Facebook page.

Museveni Commissions Wargame Centre At Kimaka…

President Museveni has commissioned a wargame centre at the Uganda Senior Command and Staff College in Kimaka, Jinja District.
Speaking at the occasion, the President thanked the army, the training teams and the Indian Association of Uganda who mobilised to build the center, saying it will definitely contribute to the quality of training.
‘This centre is also a great gesture of the wider cooperation and support we enjoy with the government and the people of India’’
The President hailed the relationship between the UPDF and the Indian army which he said has a lot of knowledge, experience and heroism.
“Our relationship with India has existed for centuries. We were colonised together by a small group of people who came from Europe, but when we all woke up, and the small groups ran away.
During that time, we fought together first against the Japanese in Burma. The heroic Indians are the ones who stopped the westward expansion of Japan at the famous battle of Kohima.


Mahatma Ghandi struggled with our elders against colonialism, Jawaharlal Nehru too struggled with our elders against colonialism and now we are working with Prime Minister Narendera Modi. I salute the Indian political class for choosing to always work with us.
The epitome of India’s importance to Uganda is engraved in the fact that Mahatma Ghandi’s ashes were immersed in Jinja.
President Museveni commended the the Indian Community in Uganda, for its contribution to building Uganda through business and investment.
The Uganda Senior Command and staff college is a training facility for senior commanders in the Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF), including the army, air force and Special Forces

WHAT ARE WAR GAMES?
War games also known as military simulations are simulations in which theories of warfare can be tested and refined without the need for actual hostilities. Military simulations are seen as a useful way to develop tactical, strategical and doctrinal solutions.
Simulations exist in many different forms, with varying degrees of realism. In recent times, the scope of simulations has widened to include not only military but also political and social factors, which are seen as inextricably entwined in a realistic warfare model.

“On Monday 18th May, when the President made his speech on easing the lockdown, I felt that many issues were not addressed well. I have picked only three – Schools, Public transport and small businesses – for today, to respond. I have made mention of their status and presented a number of Proposals for us and the state to consider,” he said.
