Due to the ongoing successful UPDF pursuit against the ADF rebels in the Eastern DRC, our counter-terrorism task teams continue to remain alert and closely monitor our Western borderline, for potential threats in the Rwenzori area, in coordination with out territorial Joint Security Teams. Although we do not have specific intelligence reflecting any new attacks along our Rwenzori axis with the DRC, we are monitoring ADF activities in Bukuka Hills across the border in the DRC, as well as acts of insecurity in Lhubirira Kasindi in Goma DRC, that occurred on the 12.12.2024.

We therefore, call upon the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity to our security teams. Our Joint Territorial teams continue to maintain a heightened posture, with patrols and increased visibility, to counter potential threats. For instance, our territorial police in Rwenzori East and Mpondwe on the 12.02.2024 at around 3pm, arrested a one Bahati Abdul Razak, a 28 year old, ADF rebel of Todoli in the DRC, who was part of the group that sneaked into Uganda in November, 2023, through Butunya – Ntoroko and carried out attacks in Kamwenge. Most of his colleagues, were eliminated, as operations targeting other remnants continue.

In a separate development, the JATT recovered an 11 year old, ADF recruit, Kibumbo Munimbu, along Kibirizi village, Lake Katwe sub-county, after he escaped from the ADF in DRC, where he had been taken by his grandfather muzungu Sulaid and 3 other children, from Erapa Nabirimba village, Buyende district. The parents of the victim, are Kibumba Muzamil and Nabirye Fatuma. Arrangements are in place to hand over the victim, as we trace for the grand father, who is an ADF rebel collaborator. We urge all parents to protect their children, and stop handing them over to hostile collaborators, who recruit them into terrorism camps.
