According to Special Forces Command spokesperson, Maj Chris Magezi, another block will also be constructed, next to Kankiruho Hall, that will also accommodate a further 20 families.

Brig. Muhoozi in his speech observed that this was a step in the right direction as far as the welfare of troops in the Special Forces is concerned.

“The Special Forces believes in tackling problems and finding solutions. This is what we are doing by addressing the accommodation challenge. We shall continue to support and enhance the welfare of troops with whatever little resources we have,” said Brig. Muhoozi.

The families were hitherto living in makeshift structures popularly known as “manyatas” in the UPDF.


Several soldiers, however, remain in these manyatas and more housing blocks will have to be constructed before everyone is accommodated.

Brig. Muhoozi also thanked the Special Forces Construction Regiment for the good construction work they were doing including on other projects in the past, such as the Ronald Batta Memorial Reception Centre at Entebbe Military Hospital, Uaminifu Officers Club at the 10 Marines Batallion, Amilcar Cabral in Nakasongola, and Fred Kayanja Hall and Mugisha Karampenge Hall in Nakasero, Kampala.

“It is the tradition of the SFC to name buildings after fallen revolutionary fighters and comrades, and many others have been given such names as Mondlane, Asiimwe, Lutamuguzi, Akanga Byaruhanga, Ronald Batta, and so on,” said Magezi.

Others present at the function were the Commander of the 2nd Special Forces Group, Lt. Col. Dons Nabasa, the Director Personnel Lt. Col. Gerald Ahimbisibwe, Commanding officers, Directors and other officers and men of the Special Forces.
