Dear Ministry of Defence / Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF),

I humbly thank you for this opportunity. My concern is the fact that during recruitment, the ministry always puts a strict note about their need to recruit forexample only candidates who finished senior four like two or three years ago.
But I find that unfair please, some of us, irrespective of whether we have degrees or not, whether we finished senior four long time ago, we have always dreamt of serving our people via the army.
So my humble request is that please during the next recruitment let's also be given chance to join the forces.
Who says a degree holder can never be a rifleman anyway.
We all understand that all that matters is ones love and matter of fact reason for joining the forces.
Thank you very much.

Yours faithfully,
