Lt Col JA Kalu has taken over as the new Sports Director for Uganda People’s Defence Forces –UPDF. The ceremony was presided over by Brig Gen Mwanja Ssekiranda. Lt Col Kulu replaces Col Micheal Ssemanda.

Brig Ssekiranda tasked the new commander to develop a clear sports strategy that would improve UPDF’s sports activities to greater heights. “I commend the outgoing director Col Ssemanda because he has left a clean account as a leader of the sports directorate. I challenge the incoming director Col Kulu to pick up from where Col Ssemanda has left off and even improve the department more,” Brig Ssekiranda said. 

                            

He reminded Lt Col Kulu that his appointment is a big task that requires coordination, teamwork, and cooperation. He, however, pledged that the UPDF strategic leadership would accord him the necessary support.

Col Deus Taremwa, the Chief of Education, Sports, and Culture in UPDF, said Col Ssemanda has diligently served as the director of sports. He added that his tenure has laid a foundation on which Lt Col Kulu will build.

Col Ssemanda applauded the UPDF top leadership mostly the Joint Chief of Staff Maj Gen Leopold Kyanda for the support rendered to him during his tenure. “I thank the staff of the directorate for the support and team spirit expressed during my tenure,” Col Ssemanda said.   

Col Ssemanda added: “I urged the staff from different disciplines such as football, basketball, handball, volleyball, kickboxing, athletics, and boxing, to cooperate with the incoming director and to professionally guide in any adjustments.”

           

Lt Col JA Kulu said he is grateful to the Army leadership which has entrusted him with the responsibility to lead the sports directorate. “I am extremely grateful for the confidence the strategic leadership has in me and the responsibility bestowed on me. I thank the outgoing director and I promise to work diligently in the execution of his duties.”
