The Commander of UPDF Land Forces, Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba has defended veteran journalist Andrew Mwenda for donning military fatigue, noting that Mwenda is part of a wider fan base that is proud of the UPDF and its great work.
Through his official Twitter account, Gen Kainerugaba said that Mwenda is part of the Army’s fan base, which is ‘just an excited’ lot.
Early this week, videos of Mwenda circulated on social media, attracting criticism from the Ugandans online.
In the Videos, Mwenda was recorded saying that he was going to launch a military assault on the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels in Congo.
The former Army spokesperson, Lt. Col. Deo Akiiki, on January 6, in defense of Mwenda’s actions noted that he could not have donned the uniform without prior permission. END.
