“We have always left the children behind in our celebrations in the army yet they are part of the great UPDF family,” Gen. Katumba said.

“Our soldiers go out for missions and leave their families behind yet they get no time to enjoy .We decided to organize this day so that even their children who cannot afford big parties can have a feel of the festive season.”


The Chief of Defence Forces in the UPDF said this inaugural occasion would also help bring together children of soldiers from the different army departments in a bid to bring about cohesion.

He highlighted that on many occasions, children don’t know their fellows from the various army departments yet they are part of the same UPDF institution, stressing those similar events will be held annually in a bid to promote cohesion.
