As we mark 39 years of Tarehe Sita that marked the beginning of a protracted people’s war that built for Uganda a national people’s army, National Resistance Army (NRA) now Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF), we should remember that the country’s dream for almost a half a millennium, was realized in our times.
The second Resistance War started on the 6th of February, 1981 and major battles ended with the capture of Kampala on the 26th of January, 1986. Within that 5 years’ War, there were four campaigns, a number of operations and many battles.
