According to police sources, the operation at NUP locations targets all locations illegally manufacturing, supplying, distributing, selling and using uniforms and accouterments whose ownership and patented designs was gazetted and an exclusive preserve of the Armed Forces.
It should be remembered that the dress code for the Uganda People's Defence Force was gazetted last year, meaning all the marks, insignia, decorations, and uniforms are the property of the state or classified stores.
