Uganda: Pictorial - Museveni Makes Nostalgic Visit to Mozambique

PICTORIAL: President Yoweri Museveni has concluded a three-day visit to Mozambique, whose highlight was a visit to the famous Montepuez Barracks where Museveni led 28 FRONASA youth in training in 1976.

Museveni's trip to Mozambique was partly to thank the Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO) for their role in the liberation movements across the continent. FRELIMO helped shape Uganda's Front for National Salvation (FRONASA), which was part of the foundation of Uganda's National Liberation Army (UNLA), National Resistance Army (NRA), and later the Uganda People's Defence Forces (UPDF).
