The Chief of Defence Forces (CDF) Gen Wilson Mbadi on Friday presided over the handover/takeover of the Deputy Commander Air Force from Maj Gen Geoffrey Katsigazi to Maj Gen Charles Okidi and Chief of Staff Air Force from Maj Gen Okidi to Brig Gen David Gonyi at a function held at Air Force headquarters in Entebbe.

In his remarks, the CDF said the appointments are a sign of confidence that the appointing authority has in the generals.

Gen Mbadi assured them that appointments come with extra responsibility although they are all manageable.

He further emphasized that handovers are symbols of accountability and urged them to continue the spirit of teamwork and discipline as core values because that’s the only way we can effectively protect the Wings of Uganda.

He congratulated the newly appointed officers and wished them the best of luck in their new assignments.

The Commander Air force Lt Gen Lutaaya said the outgoing Deputy CAF Maj Gen Katsigazi was very instrumental and very active while at Air Force and his expertise will surely be missed.

Both Both Gen Okidi and Brig Gonyi thanked President Yoweri Museveni and the UPDF leadership for entrusting them with big offices.

They pledged their commitment and support to the Commander-in-Chief and UPDF leadership in order to fulfill the strategic objectives of UPDF-AF.
