According to the Cordinator General Uganda Diaspora Patriotic Club, Eng Adam Kasambula, the training is aimed at rallying all diaspora members to put their nation first in all that they do while they are abroad.
“Patriotism is not about love for our political parties, it’s a national issue about the love of our country. Let’s together applaud our National Patron and founder of the Uganda Patriotic Clubs; H.E President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, for once again taking the initiative of starting the ideological struggle to teach Ugandans to love the country beyond partisan, religious, tribal or cultural sectarianism,” Kasambula said.
Kasambula said that so far now, 74 corps aspiring for the diaspora training have checked in at the Mbuya receiving center.
“Tentatively, in liason with the Commandant Doctrine/NALI at Mbuya, a suitable starting and ending date of the Diaspora program has been set to take pace from the 28/12/2018 to 08/01/2019 at NALI,” Kasambula said.
