President Yoweri Museveni has called upon the Uganda Peoples Defence Force (UPDF) to collaborate with local police and civilians in the pursuit of ADF terrorists who recently killed two foreign tourists and their Ugandan driver. After perpetrating the attack, the assailants set their van on fire. The operation to apprehend the group of five terrorists is ongoing in the vicinity of Bweera-Kikoroongo Road.

President Museveni emphasized the need for UPDF to involve the police and civilians in this pursuit. He stressed that dealing with these terrorists is no longer purely a military issue but also involves police work, community vigilance, and anti-terrorism efforts. The Ugandan forces are actively targeting the terrorist group’s base in Congo.

In response to the attack, UPDF initiated a “shoot to kill” operation to track down the terrorists responsible for the killings in Queen Elizabeth National Park. President Museveni condemned the attack, describing it as a “cowardly act,” and vowed to bring the perpetrators to justice.

Additionally, President Museveni commended UPDF for its successful attack on an ADF terrorist base in Congo, resulting in the destruction of one of their major camps. The operation was conducted in collaboration with the Democratic Republic of Congo, and it received praise for the joint efforts to combat the terrorists.

Overall, President Museveni stressed the importance of coordinated actions involving military, police, and civilian efforts to combat terrorism and secure the region.
