Uganda Purges Military

Following an internal fraud investigation and criticism of the failure of Uganda’s military to halt attacks by the Lord’s Resistance Army, the BBC reports that three of the five Ugandan army division commanders, the director of military intelligence, and 28 other senior military officers were fired this week.

Some of the officers will face court martials after an investigation turned up large numbers of soldiers who were on the military payroll but didn’t actually exist.
