The Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) 4th division has on Monday commenced a series of activities for this year’s Tarehe sita celebration.

The Tarehe Sita National celebration is on the 6th of February under the theme “The peoples struggle for peace and security for a modern Uganda”.

The activities include planting of trees at Gulu University and the cleaning of Gulu main market, Olailong market, Gulu Independent hospital, Gulu regional referral hospital and Gulu-Kampala highway.

Capt. Kato Hassan Mohamed, the UPDF 4th division army spokesperson, says activities being carried out is to give back to the community for their support to the armed forces.

Tarehe Sita is a Swahilli word meaning the sixth day, which in this context is the day of 06th February 1981 when the war to fight the government born out of the disputed 1980 elections, was launched with an attack on Kabamba military barracks.

To celebrate this day, the UPDF has since adopted and customized the tradition of celebrating defense forces’ week and Tarehe Sita on a regional rotational basis where it carries out various civil-military cooperation activities intended to recognize, thank and give back as a token of appreciation to the people of Uganda.
