From: Okwera Oloya
Dear Ministry of Defence / Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF),
I will be turning 31 years old by end of November 2019 and at the same time I expect to graduate with masters of Business administration (MBA) in January 2020 from one of the leading public university here in Uganda.
I am so passionate about joining the UPDF but I am much worried that my age by next recruitment may impose some barrier in pursuits of my dreams to serve and defend my nation.
I need some advice please on whether I will still be legible to join the UPDF at 31 years or so if possible and how best I can go about with pursuing my dreams.
