Major General Lokech served as the Commander of Uganda’s AMISOM contingent from May 2011 to 2012 and again between December 2017 to December 2018.

Amisom says, ”During his distinguished tours of duty, we all remember him as a man of character, great courage, integrity, and honour. He was a brave and strategic fighter, who was instrumental in commanding the counter-insurgency operations that drove Al-Shabaab out of Mogadishu in October 2011.”
