President Yoweri Museveni has called on young scientists to consider joining the military to consolidate the social-economic transformation path the country embarked on since 1986.
Museveni made the comments yesterday at State House Entebbe while delivering a lecture of opportunity to 91 young scientists who have been undergoing a two-month training at Special Forces Command Sera Kasenyi Training School.
Museveni also called upon the young scientists to join forces with the National Resistance Movement (NRM) government to fight against people who have made it a tendency to block free education for all in government schools.
The President also lectured the trainees that the four core principles of the NRM; Patriotism, Pan-Africanism, Socio-economic transformation, and Democracy are very vital in promoting prosperity among Ugandans.
He further tasked the trainees to help the government to spread the message of the NRM ideology to other Ugandans to avoid the ideological mistakes which the country faced in the past.
The Deputy Commandant of the Special Forces Command (SFC), Brig Gen. Charity Bainababo informed the President that out of the 91 officers,72 are males and 19 are females, affirming that these undertook training in military law, political education, physical training, skills at arms and basics on Kiswahili.
