The UPDF has taken 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,” said UPDF spokesperson, Brig Richard Karemire.
He said 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, Karemire explained.
He said 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.”
He noted that 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.”
