Also in attendance were various senior officers of the UPDF.

“This monument symbolizes a hugely inspirational figure in African revolutionary history. The new classroom block underscores UPDF’s values of continuous education and training to attain and maintain a professional force, so I commend the SFC leadership for that,” said Maj. Gen. Muhoozi.

Fort Samora Machel Special Forces School, named after the late Mozambican revolutionary and President of independent Mozambique, Samora Moises Machel, was commissioned by President Yoweri Museveni in November last year.

Its sole purpose will be the training of special operations forces (SOF). Samora Machel as leader of the Front for the Liberation of Mozambique (FRELIMO) was President of independent Mozambique from June 1975 until his death in a plane crash in October 1986.

His untimely death was largely blamed on the machinations of the then Apartheid state in South Africa. The plane crashed into the side of a hill at a place called Mbuzini just inside South African territory.

The Special Forces Commander, Brig. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, described the monument, named the “indefatigable warrior,” as a fitting tribute to Samora Machel, for his many outstanding military achievements.

“We hope that this monument will inspire future generations of Special Forces operators that will spend time at this school. Under Samora’s leadership, FRELIMO grew into a strong liberation movement that finally achieved independence for Mozambique. These important historical lessons cannot be forgotten,” observed Brig. Muhoozi.

Brig. Muhoozi also thanked the army leadership for their unwavering support throughout the years and said as a result a potent Special Operations Force was being built.
