The UPDF has finally allowed former Army Commander Gen David Sejusa also known as Tinyefuza, to retire and was among the 50 Army Generals who officially retired from active service of the Ugandan army on Wednesday August 31st 2022.
Gen David Sejusa whose force number is RO 00031 was number two on the list of the Army Generals retiring from active service on Tuesday during a function that took place at State House in Entebbe and presided over by the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
He first applied to retire from the Army in 1996 but his application was rejected by the top which prompted him to go to court over the same matter but still was not successful and was later deployed in different sectors of the army.
Others UPDF Generals on Tuesday’s retirement list include Lt Gen John Mugume, Lt Gen Proscovia Nalweyiso, Lt Gen Andrew Gutti, Maj Gen Stephen Kashaka, Maj Gen Phinehas Katirima, Maj Gen Elly Kayanja, Maj Gen Michael Ondoga, Maj Gen Gavas Mugyenyi, Brig Rebecca Mpagi and Brig Stephen Kwiringira among the notable ones.
The list also had former Security Minister, Gen Elly Tumwine who died last week of lung cancer having been admitted at Aga Khan University in Nairobi and was buried yesterday.
However, among the notables missing on the list is former Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura and its not clear whether this stemmed from the pending charges in the General Court Martial against Gen Kayihura that he could not be allowed to retire during this batch.
