Uganda has sent 1,822 soldiers to Somalia following al-shabaab’s attack on an Amisom base on Easter in which eight UPDF soldiers perished.

This confirms defence minister Adolf Mwesige’s recent statement that Uganda’s withdrawal from war-torn Somalia will happen if a UN review recommends so next year.

“The withdrawal of the UPDF was discussed by the UN Security Council and other agencies,” Mwesige told Parliament on April 4.

To protect Somalis you must be fit and must have discipline,” advised Maj Gen Kavuma.

“Being fit would help you fight Al-shabab and return alive.”

“It was agreed that since the threat still exists, the troop contributing countries should still on until a review in 2019.”

The soldiers will take security control of Arabisca, located about 32km from Aden Bullpen Airport in Lower Shebelle.

Flagging off the soldiers, Maj Gen Sam Kavuma, the deputy commander of land forces, called for discipline among the troops. 

“To protect Somalis you must be fit and must have discipline,” advised Maj Gen Kavuma.

“Being fit would help you fight Al-shabab and return alive.”
