UPDF Officer Who Dressed MP Lilliam Aber In Army Uniform ARRESTED


Kigtum Woman Member of Parliament Lillian Aber has sparked controversy after she was photographed wearing the full regalia of the Uganda People's Defense Force (UPDF) during a public event. The incident has drawn criticism and raised questions about the legality of civilians wearing military attire.

In a tweet posted by Hon. Aber, she acknowledged flagging off a cleaning exercise conducted by members of the UPDF as a pre-event ahead of the Terehe sita celebrations scheduled for February 6th, 2024, in Kitgum District.

However, her decision to wear the army uniform during the event has stirred backlash, with many questioning the appropriateness and legality of her actions. Wearing military attire by civilians is generally considered a breach of protocol and can carry legal consequences.

Responding to the incident, UPDF Spokesperson Felix Kulaigye confirmed that the officer who provided MP Aber with the army uniform has been arrested and will face disciplinary action.

"The UPDF noticed the Member of Parliament of Kitgum District donning our uniform. We demanded her explanation, to which she has expressed regret. The MP has indeed apologized," Afande Kulaigye stated.

While MP Aber has apologized for the incident, it serves as a reminder of the importance of upholding military protocol and respecting the boundaries between civilian and military domains. The incident also underscores the need for greater awareness and adherence to regulations governing the use of military attire by civilians.
