Lt. Gen. Nalweyiso warns Alien Skin against wearing military attire and associating with violent gangs


Lt. Gen. Proscovia Nalweyiso, a senior Ugandan military officer in the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF), has warned Alien Skin and other artists to stop wearing military uniforms.

In recent years, the security forces have been on an unending agenda to prevent politicians, artists, and ordinary persons from wearing camouflaged attires resembling the army or other security organizations.

According to the UPDF Act of 2005, Section 160 Part 2 CD, anyone who isn’t part of the security forces is prohibited from wearing their attires.

In 2019, a notice in the Uganda Gazette outlawed civilians from wearing “military materials and decorations or anything that closely resembles them.”

Regardless of all the above prohibitions and efforts, a few notable members of the public continue to wear army fatigues, something that has bothered Lt. Gen. Nalweyiso.

In an interview, Nalweyiso who is the highest-ranking female officer in UPDF is heard issuing a warning to Alien Skin and other artists against wearing army fatigues and moving with violent gangs.

Alien Skin, remove that army uniform. If you want, go and train to join the army. We have so many training schools. Unless you have a special document allowing you to wear these army uniforms and you went to Kyankwanzi, remove our combat.

I know people who support Alien Skin but let them support him without the army fatigues and gangs that he moves with to fight with other people. We do not allow such kind of behavior and I ask the responsible security organ to solve this matter before it goes out of control.
