The Ugandan army Tuesday reported that UPDF detained a group of Congolese soldiers who crossed into the country as a result “recent clashes” between The Democratic Republic of Congo’s army and deserters.

Army spokes man Felix Kulayigye was quoted by state owned daily paper, New Vision as saying that, “15 of them, including a major and they crossed over..” adding that they had been handed over to the country’s refugee agency. According to UPDF, the arrested were in Congolese army uniforms that crossed the border close to the town of Bunagana.

Great Lakes Voice, On Thursday, April 5, reported that “Three Congolese soldiers were killed; during the violent clashes that opposed the rebels Ugandan ADF-Nalu in communities of Makembi Eringeti, located sixty miles northwest of the town of Beni (North Kivu).” This should be clear that FARDC was not fighting separates but Ugandan rebels.

This information was confirmed by Kalonda Amisi, administrator of the territory of Beni. Saying there is Ugandan rebels ADF-Nalu active in this area that attacked the positions of the Congolese soldiers who returned fire and chased the attackers. About these reports of ADF rebels, UPDF should be clear since security agencies know exactly about the rebels.

The commander of the first sector of the Armed Forces of DRC (FARDC) based in Beni and Rwenzori in charge of operations for the disarmament of the Ugandan rebels, Colonel Eric Rurihombere, also confirmed the facts.

Uganda forces have the obligation to tell the Ugandans and the world the truth about the arrested.

DR Congo President Joseph Kabila flew Monday to Goma, the main city in the volatile Nord Kivu province, although no official reason was given for the visit.
