Uganda and Equatorial Guinea Military Hold Talks

Posted Jul 16, 2018

Uganda and Equatorial Guinea have held a bilateral meeting aimed at strengthening military cooperation between the two countries.

A delegation from the Armed Forces of Equatorial Guinea led by Brig Alejandro Mitogo Nnencongo from the Force Headquarters department of Personnel and Administration, has paid a courtesy call on the UPDF Chief of Defence Forces (CDF) Gen David Muhoozi at the UPDF Headquarters – Mbuya.

The purpose of the visit was to review the training programme between the UPDF and the Armed Forces of Equatorial Guinea, based on the already existing Agreement between the two countries.

While receiving the delegation, Gen Muhoozi applauded Equatorial Guinea for maintaining a strong partnership with Uganda initiated by the countries’ Heads of State.

He reaffirmed UPDF readiness to support the just cause of capacity building of sister forces on the continent whenever called upon. “All our training teams are doing a wonderful job which is all as a result of a strong Military cooperation between us. As UPDF, we shall not turn back but rather add more’’ he said.

The CDF encouraged the delegation to multiply their forces by using the now trained officers to train others. He also talked about the plan to open diplomatic posts in both countries so that cooperation can be deepened in all areas of mutual interest.

Brig Alejandro Mitogo Nnencongo on behalf of the Government of Equatorial Guinea applauded the President and Commander-In-Chief for allowing UPDF to train their officers. He promised never to jeopardize the programme because they (Equatorial Guinea) have enormous benefits already realized.

The meeting was attended by Maj Gen Peter Elwelu the Commander Land Forces (CLF), Maj Gen Charles Lutaya, Commander of Airforce (CAF) and Maj Gen Joseph Musanyufu the Joint Chief of Staff (JCOS) among others.
