Marines Core Values

Core Values

Our core values are enshrined in loyalty, teamwork and discipline. Clearly, our vision, mission and core values are coherent with the ideology founded on patriotism, a pan African approach, prosperity and protection of our democratic values.

Prosperity and Peace

Church Hill called Uganda “the Pearl of Africa”. Keri Harvey says, “If ever there was an African Eden, it is Uganda. A place of vastness and extreme natural beauty, with genteel people and rare wildlife, this is Africa’s Garden of the Gods”. According to Uganda National Tourism Board, “Uganda is a country gifted by nature”. The UPDF describes it as an Island of Peace. This is because the founding father of NRA/UPDF believes Ugandans cannot harness nature to prosper without peace. For instance, Albertine Graben is endowed with national parks, fish resources, oil resources and mineral resources. These assets are within our shared water bodies with the DRC. Mitigating vulnerabilities on our shared waterways will enable the UPDF to consolidate peace and security.
