The Uganda People's Defence Forces (UPDF) will recruit 9,627 cadets into their ranks this year.

According to Brig Gen Alex Olupot, head the joint staff training and doctrine, applicants will be citizens who sat O-Level between 2000 ans 2023.

The army will start receiving applications on May 27 and close its window June 2, with interviews scheduled to start on July 1 and run up to July 14.

"Prospective recruits must have passed English and Mathematics at the same level," Gen Olupot added.

However, the age requirement appears to rule out many who sat their Senior Four final examinations before 2010 as the army said the exercise will strictly be for those ages 18 to 22.
