Gen Museveni posthumously promotes the fallen Lokech to the rank of Lt.Gen. Whisper Eye News

Gen Museveni has given a fair send off to the late Gen Lokech as he decided to promote the fallen Maj Gen to the rank of Lt. Gen

Gen Museveni says this was in appreciation of the great service Gen Lokech has rendered during the time he was putting on the army uniform.

Museveni says he personally as Commander-in-Chief worked closely with Lokech three times, where he did meritorious service. He says that On one occasion, he was in Gulu with the anti-LRA operations and was informed that there was a Commander that routinely fought through LRA ambushes in the area between Atanga and Acholibur.

He adds that Second time, he heard of Lokech was when he was Contingent Commander in Somalia.

“I hereby, using the authority given to the President by Articles 98 and 99 of the 1995 Constitution of Uganda, promote Major General Paul Lokech, Posthumously, to the rank of Lieutenant – General.” Gen Museveni said

President Museveni also promised to give all necessary support to the family of the Lion of Magadishu.
