Uganda has deployed a new battalion in Somalia to boost AMISOM capacity despite a road map to withdraw all UPDF troops by end of 2017.

The new battle group dubbed UGABAG XIX under the command of Colonel Anthony Mbuusi Lukwago replaces another battle group XVI which completed a one-year duty late last month.

The battalion arrived in Somalia on Monday and is awaiting deployment to Lower Shabelle.

Uganda has 6,700 soldiers in Somalia.
