The Chief of Defense Forces, Gen Edward Katumba Wamala, has said that the army will boost the nation’s air space security and guard the oil sector from any aggression
General Katumba says Uganda is all proud about the oil discovery and that the country is looking forward to that moment when oil starts oozing out of the ground.
He however noted that oil may attract many interests that are good or bad for the country because lessons have been learnt from some African countries with oil resources that have had violence
He revealed that for the country to harness oil resource minus any turbulence, there is need to maximize the security capacity and training of armed forces.
Gen Wamala made the remarks at the pass out ceremony of 20 jet pilots and 50 technicians at Gulu Airbase last Friday
