AMISOM mourns the passing of former Sector One Commander, Major General Paul Lokech

Radio Dalsan

The entire African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) is deeply saddened by the news of the passing of former Sector One Commander, Major General Paul Lokech, in Kampala, Uganda.

Major General Lokech served as the Commander of Uganda’s AMISOM contingent from May 2011 to 2012 and again between December 2017 to December 2018.

During his distinguished tours of duty, we all remember him as a man of character, great courage, integrity, and honour. He was a brave and strategic fighter, who was instrumental in commanding the counter-insurgency operations that drove Al-Shabaab out of Mogadishu in October 2011.

As a towering icon in the fight against armed militants, he leaves an enduring legacy that will never be forgotten. We hold his family, the UPDF and the people of Uganda in our prayers, as we remember his incredible and valiant contributions to peace and security in Somalia.

AMISOM will fondly remember Major General Lokech as an astute commander who selflessly supported the implementation of the mission’s mandate to degrade terrorists in Somalia.e commander who selflessly supported the implementation of the mission’s mandate to degrade terrorists in Somalia.
