Museveni Warns on ADF Attacks, calls for Vigilance

Sunday, October 15, 2023

President Yoweri Museveni, also the Commander-in-Chief, has issued a warning to the public regarding potential terror attacks by the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF).

Museveni’s concern stems from a recent offensive operation on Saturday, where UPDF fighter-bombers targeted ADF terrorists at four different points along the Bundibugyo-Semiliki border. This operation resulted in the elimination of numerous terrorists.

“It appears that a significant number of terrorists were neutralized. Consequently, some of these terrorists are fleeing from the perceived sanctuary of Congo and re-entering Uganda, attempting to carry out random acts of terror,” Museveni stated in a released statement.

On the preceding Friday, ADF rebels attacked a Ugandan trailer transporting onions from Kisoro to the Mpondwe border, resulting in the loss of one life and injury to another.

Museveni has called upon the public to remain vigilant as the UPDF continues its efforts to eliminate the rebels in the Congo jungles.

“The public is advised to be watchful for unfamiliar individuals in their communities and to promptly report them to the nearest police station. This applies to even long-absent relatives who suddenly return, as they may be linked to the terrorists,” he urged.
