“UPDF refutes the story in a Sunday pepper on 13th of august 2017 alleging that UPDF is on a standby to support security operations in Kenya. It is also not true that we deployed after the last election and we evacuated the Kenyans president to Uganda,” read part of the statement.

It continued: “There are absolutely no such preparations and no team of officers has been sent out to Kenya in preparations of the same. The Republic of Kenya is a sovereign country and as such, its security and that of its people are exclusively within their domain.”
