    Background: The Ugandan High Commissioner in Ghana, Brigadier S.O. Opolot, attended the graduation ceremony of Ugandan cadets at the Ghana Military Academy in Teshie on Saturday (June 24). The 19 officer cadets had just completed a six-month course at the Ghanaian Academy, the second group to do so -- the previous one was in 1965.

    Brigadier Opolot -- who was accompanied by the Acting Commander of the Academy, Colonel David Asare -- reviewed the graduation parade and presented a wards to the top cadets. Later, he spoke the them, telling them their training was designed to make them military leaders of Uganda, that their loyalty to the nation must be absolute and unquestionable, in spite of long, tedious, and sometimes demanding assignments.
