The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party has dismissed the army promotions and labelled them a clan promotion

Amuriat Patrick Oboi the FDC President says there were illegalities in the army promotions announced last week when President Yoweri Museveni promoted more than 2000 officers and men of the Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) personnel to various ranks.

Those promoted to Generals include Lt Gen Ivan Koreta, and Lt Gen Joram Mugume while Pecos Kutesa, John Mugume, Proscovia Nalweyiso, Charles Awany Otema, James Nakibus Lakara, Peter Elwelu, and Muhoozi Kainerugaba who have been promoted from Maj. Gen to Lt Gen.

Amuriat says the promotions did not reflect a national character. It was a clan promotion, he claimed.
