"I thank my brother for sending you", President Museveni said. "Capacity building is very essential and Uganda is willing to cooperate with Equatorial Guinea. When fighting Idi Amin, I trained 28 young people in Mozambique. They became the core of our army who trained others," he added. The President stated that Uganda is on the frontline in fighting hostile groups. "We want to help but also teach a lesson that Africa belongs to Africans. The problem is the politics and a wrong type of army that is not oriented to fight and defend their country and defend it cheaply," he said.
