Lt Col Susan Lakot Oruni, a student from Uganda said that recognizing different cultures for them as Army personnel is very important.
“Because of the nature of work, we do as army personnel, we don’t only operate in our own countries hence the need to be well versed with cultures of other people. Culture makes us who we are and its preservation makes us proud as Africans.”
