UPDF’s Chief of Defence Forces, Gen Edward Katumba Wamala, has said the country’s air force will be tasked in guarding the oil sector from any aggression.
According to Gen. Katumba, Uganda has learnt a lesson from some African oil producing countries that have had violence emanating from oil resources.
Uganda resolve to deploy its air force to guard the oil resources saying once oil starts oozing from the oil fields, it will attract many interests that are both good and bad to the country.
Gen. Wamala said for Uganda to harness oil resource without any uproar, there is need to maximize the security capacity and training of armed forces.
Gen Wamala was speaking at the pass out ceremony of 20 jet pilots and 50 technicians at Gulu Airbase last Friday.
