Ugandan military launches new condom for troops

Ugnada’s military has launched a new condom brand, Ulinzi (Swahili for “protection”), for its soldiers in order to ensure they have safe sex.

Chief of Staff Brig Leopold Kyanda told troops they needed to be “safe first and thereafter you can defend the country”.

“If the individual soldier does not ensure that he is secure then there is no way he can defend his country,” he added.

The rubbers dubbed Ulinzi condoms, were launched by Nelson Musoba, the Director General Uganda AIDS commission alongside UPDF Chief of Staff General Kyanda at the Bombo Army Barracks.

It was the latest initiative taken by the government as it aimed to significantly reduce the number of HIV/AIDS related deaths particularly in the military.
