Ntoroko: There is a joint army training currently going on between commandos of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) and French troops.

The armies from both Uganda and France started a 10 day combined military training code-named ‘Mountain Ghost’ in Uganda’s Ntoroko district. UPDF spokesperson Brigadier Richard Karemire revealed that the exercise  is aimed at helping  to make soldiers’ maneuverability within the mountains  easier as far as protecting the country is concerned. The Chief Instructor Lt.Col JK Kiyengo, encouraged team work and cooperation during the exercise, since it’s the culture of the UPDF.

While commenting about the exercise, the Head of  the French troops Maj Asedu, applauded the government of Uganda  and the UPDF for the good hospitality and cooperation between the two  countries.  He noted that the French troops will continue sharing knowledge, tactics, combat skills help and also learn  from their Ugandan counterparts during this training exercise. The  combined training exercise is to equip soldiers with mountain fighting  tactics and make the operations easier in mountainous areas. The  training is taking place at Karugutu Training school which was  established 3 years ago with the help of the French government and it  specializes in Mountain War Fare Technical Courses. an accessible web community an accessible web community
