Uganda army commander meets UN sec-
retary general representative over ADF  

Kampala, (Xinhua) -- The Ugandan Chief of Defence Forces, Gen David Muhoozi on Tuesday held talks with David Gressly, the Deputy Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General for the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), in Kampala.

A statement released by the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) deputy spokesperson, Lt Col Deo Akiiki quoted Gressy for appreciating efforts by the UPDF to wipe out the allied Democratic Forces rebels currently hiding in the jungles of the DRC.

“The recent areal and artillery bombardment by Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) inflicted heavy casualties on ADF and we shall continue to give the Congolese forces enough logistical support to continue with the current operation,” Gressy said.

Gressy also promised to work with the UPDF and the Ugandan government to ensure that citizens both in DRC and Uganda are not attacked by remnants of the ADF.

Gen Muhoozi said UPDF will continue to give unlimited support to DRC forces whenever called upon.

Last December, the Ugandan army claimed it had attacked and killed more than 100 ADF fighters in DRC using air strikes. The UPDF also claimed that eight of the ADF stronghold bases were totally destroyed.

The ADF started operations in Uganda in 1995 and by 2013, hundreds of innocent civilians had been killed.
