Uganda Military Strength
Sources: The Library of Congress Country Studies; CIA World Factbook
By 1990 information regarding military organization and composition was not published. As president, Museveni held the defense portfolio and controlled all military decision making. Western reports of military strength estimated 70,000. Budgetary problems apparently had prevented Museveni from achieving his promise of increasing the NRA's size to 100,000. No information was available on military organization; Western sources cited only six brigades, several battalions, and a Police Air Wing.
Data as of December 1990
