The UPDF Chief of Defence Forces (CDF) Gen David Muhoozi has praised the outgoing Managing Director Total Uganda Mr Obi Imemba for his selfless and committed service not only to UPDF but also to Uganda as a country.
Gen Muhoozi, who was among the invited guests for the send-off at the residence of the Managing Director in Kololo referred to Mr. Imemba as a giant, a friend and a solid guy of all circumstances.
“You are a giant that has made your presence felt in such a short time, UPDF has benefited from your close partnership. We welcome your colleague Daniel coming to take over from where you have stopped.” He said.
The CDF promised to build further the UPDF-Total relationship for mutual interest for both. He thanked Mr Andrew Rugasira – the Member Advisory Round Table Total Uganda limited for introducing him to Mr Obi Imemba.
