Clarification on Army ranks story

In our Monday, August 24, lead story ‘Army rank saga ruffles NRM govt’, we omitted some names and placed others in the wrong regions. 

For instance, we forgot to include Brig. Charles Angina (Teso), Brig. Sam Kawagga (Buganda) and Maj. Gen. Fred Oketcho (Teso). We categorized Brig. Robert Rusoke as being from Ankore but he is actually from Tooro. Nathan Mugisha was included as both a Brigadier and Major General, but he is actually the latter.

We named Geoffrey Taban Kyabihende as being from Kigezi but he is actually from Ankore. Maj. Gen. Jim Oweyesigire was categorised as hailing from Ankore but he is from Kigezi. Bernard Rwehururu was classified as Major General but he is actually a Brigadier. Maj. Gen. Francis Nyangweso was included but we have since learnt that he never became part of NRA/UPDF. We regret the error and publish below a corrected list. Take note that we have placed officers in their tribal area and not where they are settled or were actually born.
