The UPDF Commander Land Forces, Maj Gen Peter Elwelu, has commended Brig Sabiiti Muzeyi for reorganizing the Military Police through promoting the spirit of team work and nationalism.
According to Maj Gen Elwelu, Brig Muzeyi, who is the new deputy Inspector General of Police, is a dedicated and loyal senior officer who works for a peaceful Uganda.
He made the remarks on Saturday as Brig Muzeyi handed over the command of the Military Police to Col William Bainomugisha at Military Police Barracks in Makindye, Kampala.
Maj Gen Elwelu also urged Col Bainomugisha to build on Brig Muzeyi’s achievements.
“Keep up the spirit of working with others to achieve national objectives,” Maj Gen Elwelu said, adding that humility, commitment and team spirit will make Uganda peaceful and stable.
He also implored UPDF soldiers to be good listeners just like Brig Sabiiti and be vigilant for the prosperity of Ugandans.
“We work for the people and without the people, we are useless as UPDF,” Maj Gen Elwelu said.
On his part, Brig Sabiiti lauded President Museveni and the UPDF leadership for recognising his contribution to the security of the country by his new appointment.
He also commended the local community for working with Military Police to neutralise crime in Kampala, saying teamwork, joint security operations, and cooperation with other key stakeholders in the field of development explain his credibility.
Col Bainomugisha commended the UPDF leadership for his new task, adding that discipline, team work, physical fitness, and time management, among others, will define his leadership at Military Police.
The function was also attended by the Deputy Commandant Military Police, Col Geoffrey Karugaba and other senior and junior UPDF officers.
