UPDF joint chief of staff has said Gen Sejusa does not deserve any salary
The Uganda people’s defence force joint chief of staff Maj. Gen Wilson Mbadi has said embattled Gen Sejusa does not deserve any salary since he did not render any services to the forces.
Maj. Gen Mbadi wrote in a statement issued on Feb 19 that the army does not see reasons to pay the general since he was not offering any service to the forces during his period of absence while in exile.
Mr Mbadi’s statement comes in reply to gen Sejusa’s lawyers Mr Micheal Mabike and Mr David Mushabe who had prior written to the UPDF seeking for payment of Sejusa’s arrears.
The lawyers claimed that since their client is still required to wear a military uniform and has never been retired, he is entitled to a salary.
Gen David Sejusa returned to the country in December 2014 after a stint away in exile. He has since asked to be retired from the army, but his request is yet to be granted.
