Mrs Rosette Byengoma the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Defence and Veterans Affairs, to whom the infrastructure was handed over by the contractor, ‘’ studying in grass thatched houses and under trees is now history.”
The total built-up area of the completed infrastructure works includes, classrooms, Senior Officers houses, Dormitories, Dining halls, a Kitchen, parade ground, ablusion blocks, stores and the main administration block.
Gen David Muhoozi the UPDF Chief of Defence Forces said “The face of Kaweweta has changed from tree classes to built up classrooms, I thank Brig Gen Besigye the Commander Engneers Brigade for overseeing all the works at the Peace Support Operations Centre- Singo and other training centres.’’
The Commandant of Kaweweta Recruit Training School Brig Gen James Ruhesi said that the school has always been in need of such infrastructure and will go a long way to not only to provide protection (security to trainees), command and control , comfort but also reduce on the continuous trespass while searching for local building materials.
