MAJ GEN PROSCOVIA NALWEYISO
Recognized by Public Opinions on 31st March 2021 with the Uganda Responsible Investment Mark of Excellence Award as an
Exceptional Inspiration Female Freedom Fighter

 

Maj Gen Proscovia Nalweyiso was recognized by Public Opinions on 31st March 2021 with the Uganda Responsible Investment Mark of Excellence Award as an Exceptional Inspiration Female Freedom Fighter in appreciation of her immeasurable contribution towards Liberation of Uganda from the Tyrannical Regimes, and her commitment to attainment of the Uganda Vision 2040 and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Proscovia Nalweyiso is the first Female Major General in Uganda, and one of the few women across the continent to hold such a powerful military position. She joined the NRA Liberation war in 1982 and commanded the Unit of female NRA fighters up to 1986 when she was appointed the commandant of the 800-member women's wing in the Army at that time. She has since been committed to working closely with H.E Gen Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to ensure total peace and stability in all parts of Uganda.

Gen Nalweyiso is a senior Ugandan military officer in the Uganda People's Defense Forces (UPDF). At the rank of Major General, she is the highest ranking female officer, in the Ugandan military. She is one of the most powerful Women in Uganda and one of the best handlers of H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.

Maj General Proscovia Nalweyiso was born in June 1954, in Mpigi District, in a family with 20 children. In 1979, she began work as a schoolteacher and typist in her home area. During his period, she became an active member of the Ugandan Democratic Party. Following the 1980 Ugandan National Elections and the subsequent formation of the National Resistance Army (NRA), Nalweyiso joined the guerrillas in the bush in 1982 which captured state power in 1986 hence the final liberation of Uganda from tyrannical regimes.

In 1983 a unit of female NRA fighters was formed and Nalweyiso was appointed as its commandant. The following year, the unit was relocated from Luwero District in Central Uganda, to Western Uganda.

In 1985, the unit Nalweyiso commanded participated in the NRA forces that attacked Mbarara military barracks. Following that deployment, the NRA Women's Wing settled in Fort Portal, until the war ended in 1986. In 1986, when the NRA captured power, Nalweyiso was given the rank of captain and appointed the commandant of the 800-member women's wing in the army, at that time. She steadily rose through the ranks and by 2000 was at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.

In 2011, Proscovia Nalweyiso became the first female Brigadier General in Ugandan Army ranks, a noteworthy achievement, which was celebrated across the continent. Fast-forward to 2017, the country has recorded another remarkable milestone, the promotion of Brigadier Nalweyiso to the rank of Major General.

For over a decade prior to her promotion to Major General, she had worked at the Uganda State House as an aide and military adviser to H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni the president of the Republic of Uganda.
