Why Saleh disagreed with Amama, Tinye on ghosts

The Weekly Observer "The problem of ghost soldiers in the UPDF is complex and will not be solved by mere trials of the suspected perpetrators, Gen. Salim Saleh, a former Army Commander, stated in a 2004 minority report on ghost soldier creation.
Saleh was part of the three-man High Command committee tasked to investigate ghost soldier creation in the army in 2003, alongside Defence Minister Amama Mbabazi and General David Tinyefuza.
Their report, which has been widely reported about in the press, called for prosecution, dismissal and even possibly the death penalty for those found guilty of ghost soldier creation."
