UPDF Repels ADF Attempting to Cross into Uganda in Kasese

Kasese District | THE BLACK EXAMINER | Suspected Allied Democratic Force (ADF) members attempting to enter Uganda were repelled by the Uganda People’s Defense Forces (UPDF), according to Kasese Resident District Commissioner Lt. Joe Walunsimbi.

The ADF rebels were reportedly turned away near the Ugandan-Democratic Republic of Congo border, specifically at Kisebere in Nyabugando, Nyabungando ward. Lt. Walunsimbi, who arrived at the scene, indicated that initial investigations suggested the ADF rebels were seeking access to medical facilities at Mama Safina Medical Center and Nyabugando Health Centre III in Mpondwe-Lhubiriha town council.

Lt. Walunsimbi commended the vigilant residents of Kisebere for their cooperation with the UPDF and other security agencies, which contributed to repelling the ADF incursion.

Residents, including Ms. Jane Masika Bukundika and Mr. Pascal Kadyeba, raised concerns about potential collaborators of the ADF within Uganda and called for thorough investigations by security forces.

Mr. Kato Stephen, a resident of Nyabugando one cell in Mpondwe-Lhubiriha town council, urged security to intensify day and night patrols to apprehend the five suspected ADF rebels who remained on the Ugandan side.
