UPDF gunships devastate big ADF camp in DRC

23 Oct 2023

KAMPALA: The Uganda People’s Defense Forces gunships have attacked a big camp of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), leaving it devastated.

According to President Yoweri Museveni, the attack happened on Saturday at least 60km from Ntoroko inside DRC.

“This is to inform you that today, the 21st of October, 2023, we paid a serious visit to the ADF terrorists in Congo. Our gunships attacked a big camp of these criminals, 60km from the border, Ntoroko side,” Museveni said.

The attack was devastating because it was a clear target and the reconnaissance plane, was monitoring from the air. Congratulations to our Air-Force and the SDR that locates these criminals,” he added.

The president said the army was pursuing a group of rebels which killed four people in two separate attacks.

“Meanwhile, the group of five People that burnt the lorry, the tourist van and killed the two tourists with their driver, is being hunted in the area to the left of Bweera- Kikoroongo Road as you come from Bweera,” Museveni said.

“The UPDF should involve the Police and the Wananchi to hunt for these groups, running from Congo. They are no longer a military problem. They are; Police, popular vigilance and anti-terrorism efforts,” he said.

He thanked DRC president Felix Tshisekedi “for agreeing to work with us to uproot these criminals.”

Ugandan troops, together with their DRC counterparts, have been jointly fighting the rebel group since November 2022.

The ADF, also a branch of the Islamic State in central Africa, is blamed for causing havoc and mounting attacks in North Kivu and Ituri provinces in eastern DRC.
