UPDF Officers Receive Human Rights Training, Cautioned On Rule Of Law

40 UPDF officers in total and militants of the Third Division have successfully peaked training on human rights. The three-day training happened in Kotido.

It furnished participants with knowledge and skills on the following aspects; human Rights and need for disarmament, human rights and women/children, observation of human rights standards, standard operation procedures and code of conduct for UPDF soldiers during operations, and human Rights instruments, among others.

UPDF Third Division commander, Brig Gen Joseph Balikuddembe gave remarks as he closed the training. He noted that this training came at a time when human rights need to be respected in the pursuit of cattle rustlers destabilizing the sun-region.

“As state actors, we commit ourselves to line obligations of protection, respect and fulfillment as regards human rights aspects,” he emphasized.

He further reminded the participants that UPDF will remain committed, accountable, observe and promote all the desired human rights standards.

He cited Article 208 and 209 of the Constitution, which stipulate the roles and responsibilities of UPDF as a pro-people force.

On her account, Grace Pelly, the UN Country Deputy Representative, showed her gratitude. This is for closely working with the UPDF to build sustainable peace and stability initiatives across the country.

“Such fruitful engagements have helped the UPDF to promote human rights standards before, during and after operations. We like to see it move to greater heights,” she said.
