Ugandan President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni who is also the Commander-in-Chief of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) has revealed that Educated people can make good soldiers and cadres.
“When you hear that some armies do well like the Israeli army, it is because they are Educated people. In the 1960s, when they were fighting with the people they were fighting with, you would get Educated people fighting with peasants from other countries and they could not manage because of technology, and quick learning. The only problem is that sometimes the Educated become proud and look down upon manual work but otherwise
Educated people can make good soldiers and very good cadres in different areas,” the President said.
Gen. Museveni made the remarks yesterday as he presided over the passing out of 9,690 Local Defence Personnel (LDP) drawn from three training schools Kaweweta Recruit Training School in Nakaseke, Labwordwong Training School in Agago and Olilim Training School in Karamoja. The event took place at Kaweweta Recruit Training School
