“We have already contacted religious institutions, both catholic, Muslims, Protestants and others, and they are all exited and ready to give us all the support for the occasion,” said army spokesperson Lt Paddy Ankunda at a press briefing on Tuesday.

He noted: “The reason we went for this, was because weddings are getting more and more expensive nowadays, getting gowns, cars arranging for venues and the rest.”

“We decided to have it the cheaper way, because some of our officers may not afford all these expenses involved in legalizing their marriages, yet this is one of the most important rites in a man’s life.”


Some of the officers we spoke at the army headquarters in Mbuya expressed excitement about the development and hoped that it would in future be fully adopted by the Forces and held regularly.

Also commenting on the big day was the Army’ Chief of Defense Forces, Gen Katumba Wamala, who said, “If the UPDF can go as far as organizing a mass wedding for its officials, that tells you how things are getting better in there.”
