WATCH| Embarrassment As Uganda Paratroopers Miss Target,Crashland On Spectators

Social media users have been shaken by a viral video of Uganda paratroopers who missed their targets and fell on spectators in a stadium.

It was all pomp and fanfare at Kololo Independence Grounds on 9 October, where Ugandans converged to celebrate the country’s 60th independence day.

Soldiers were also part of the program to entertain and thrill the public. Multirole fighter jets, paratroopers and commandos were part of the drills on display as Uganda showed off its military might.

They made march pasts as President Yoweri Museveni, and other visiting heads of state watched the spectacle.

Despite the event being meant to impress the public and the visitors, it became a full-blown embarrassment for President Museveni.

Military choppers dropped paratroopers at intervals, who had to land on the stadium’s pitch.

One serviceman was descending with a parachute, and he looked perfectly poised to land on the pitch. All of a sudden, the parachute folded slightly and yanked the soldier, disturbing his hold on it.

He lost control of the speeding glider, and it plunged into the drum majorettes who were matching on the track.

A second soldier who was in mid-air also lost control of his parachute, and it flew directly onto the mobile toilets in the stadium.

Two more hapless paratroopers failed to master their glides, and they mowed into the spectators on the terraces.

“They should have aborted the mission……the wind strengths and direction too volatile.🤣😂”
