Some of the key areas that RDCs received training in were how to detect subversive activities such as recruitment into rebel ranks and civil disobedience, terrorism, armed robberies, murders, illegal firearms, assault, rape and defilement, illegal fishing, illegal immigrants, religious cults, land conflicts to mention a few.


RDCs especially those in border areas were also given tactics of monitoring activities of armed groups such as ADF, NALU, LRA and militia groups in DRC such as M18.


They were trained in detecting and managing terrorism especially from terror groups such as Al Shabab, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram. RDCs that work in areas with big water bodies were also trained to look out for piracy on Ugandan lakes especially Lakes Victoria and Albert.


Officials told Chimpreports that RDCs were equipped with skills in monitoring the proliferation of small arms and light weapons coming into the country through porous borders especially in the not so stable neighbouring states of South Sudan and DRC.

“Essential measures of management of security matters included creating strong networks that can be used to raise early warnings to any security threats,” reads part of a brief from the President’s office.


RDCs were asked to pay particular interests in shopping malls, schools, security installations such as key bridges, dams, telephone network masts and military facilities.


Other techniques that can be used to prevent crime are neighbourhood watches, community policing, surveillance of suspected human beings using human and CCTV cameras in buildings where there is heavy human traffic.


Agriculture


Other areas where RDCs have received training in the last few days include the state of agriculture in the country presented by the Minister for Agriculture Hon. Tress Bucyanayandi.


The minister gave the RDCs the strategic vision for the ministry and how RDCs can help farmers to improve their yields.


A presentation by the National Forestry Authority’s Executive Director Michael Mugisa was also received.


He encouraged the RDCs to help the authority to protect the central forest reserves as well encourage the wanaichi to undertake commercial tree planting which is a very lucrative business that does not require a lot of time and money.


National Medical Stores boss, Moses Kamabare, took the RDCs through the process of drug storage and distribution and assured the RDCs that the nation is today well equipped with drugs.


Hon. Todwong lectured RDCs on several aspects of political mobilization for political and social economic transformation.


The retreat is still ongoing until Saturday evening with a closing key note address from President Museveni.
