Somalia UPDF expedition was ill-advised-Nganda

Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda

Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] publicity secretary, Ssemujju Ibrahim Nganda, has castigated President Yoweri Museveni’s government for sending the national army into Somalia.

“We made a mistake and it’s time we cut the losses. How many soldiers do you want us to lose to realise it was a mistake?” Nganda said on Monday, referring to the 12 UPDF soldiers killed in Somalia.

“We should have never gone to Somalia and I believe Uganda should have withdrawn its troops long time ago.”

The Kira Municipality MP said the biggest territory in Somalia is under al-Shaabab and that Uganda occupies a small fraction.

He suggested that there is no any other country that will stabilise another country citing what US did in Iraq.

“This was an ill-advised expedition; not Uganda or any country would have gone to Somalia.”

On Sunday, UPDF Somalia contingent commander, Brig Kayanja Muhanga, has visited the scene where Al Shabaab militants launched an ambush on Uganda troops of Battle Group XX in Lower Shebelle region.

UPDF Spokesman, Brig Richard Karemire, said the ambush on SNA/AMISOM troops by Al Shabaab terrorists at Goryowein along Bulu-maler and Beladamin, left 12 gallant soldiers with 07 sustaining injuries.

Karemire said the UPDF office of Chief of Personnel and Administration is contacting the next of kin of the deceased and injured to inform them of the developments while arrangements are being made to transport deceased comrades to their homes of origin for descent burial.

Al Shabaab claims to have killed 39 African Union soldiers in total including one Somalia National Army soldier.
