The 79-year-old said that after defeating ADF, they resorted to desperate measures of trying to infiltrate Uganda, plant bombs and even assassinate some of the citizens.
UPDF and FARDC are currently hunting ADF rebels in DRC and a number of them have been put out of actions.
Maj Bilal, the Public Information Officer, Operation Shujaa and UPDF Mountain Division confirmed the development.
The EACRF Uganda Contingent Commander echoed to the members that UPDF is a pro-people army and a neutral force.
Quoting the UPDF, some refugees said that Uganda Peoples Defence Forces Contingent operating under the EACRF has given them the confidence to return home as calmness and relative peace has been registered with no fighting, insecurity or any violations of the peace agreement in areas under their responsibility.
“Had the UPDF not responded in time, it would mark the beginning of my poverty and subsequent suffering,” Mujungu said.
In a statement, UPDF says this decision by Uganda is in compliance with the decision and consideration of 20th extra ordinary summit of the East African Community heads of state held in Bujumbura-Burundi on February 4, 2023 and the East African Chief of Defence Forces meeting of February 9, 2023, respectively.
Anthony Nkinzo, Director General of ANAPI stressed that “the DRC is a land of opportunities, with a geostrategic position in the heart of Africa”.
