UPDF Warns NRM Ministers Over Misuse of Escorts

The Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) has issued a strong warning to NRM Ministers that they are on the verge of losing their escorts after intelligence leaked that they are using them for their political gains.

According to the message issued by UPDF Spokesperson Brig.Gen Flavia Byekwaso, members of parliament who use their escorts for political gains will be withdrawn from them.

“It has come to our notice that many members of Parliament across the political divide who were given military escorts for their security in the wake of armed criminality last year have started misusing these soldiers in the current political season,” reads part of the UPDF message.

Gen Byekwaso further warns UPDF Soldiers that they should not be misused by their masters for their political gains.
