In regards to national security, President Museveni has issued a statement addressing the recent events. Yesterday, on the 14th of October 2023, the Ugandan fighter-bombers conducted targeted strikes against ADF terrorists at multiple locations along the Ugandan border. Following their retreat from Congo, these terrorists are attempting to infiltrate the borders, posing a significant threat to our communities.
The President urgently calls upon every citizen to maintain utmost vigilance. It is paramount to report any suspicious activities or unfamiliar individuals promptly to the nearest police station. Even returning relatives who appear unexpectedly may be involved in these nefarious activities.
Below is the statement in detail:
Ugandans, especially the Bazzukulu.
This is to inform you that yesterday, the 14th of October 2023, our fighter-bombers paid a visit to the ADF terrorists at 4 different points. These points were at: 72kms, 120kms, 69kms and 130kms from the border on the Bundibugyo-Semiliki side. It seems quite a number of terrorists were killed.
As a consequence, the terrorists are running from Congo which they thought was heaven and re-entering Uganda and trying to commit some random terrorist acts.
The attack on a truck carrying onions to the market across the border in Congo the other day, 12kms from the border near Bweera, Kasese, may have been by such elements.
The Public is, therefore, alerted to look out for strange People that come to your area. Report them to the Police that are nearest to you. Even relatives that have been away for a long time and suddenly return. They may be part of the terrorists.
