12 ADF Collaborators Arrested At Uganda-DR Congo Border

The Uganda and DR Congo team was instituted to eliminate ADF threats after an attack on Kampala, Uganda.

Ugandan authorities say they have arrested 12 collaborators of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) in the districts of Ntoroko and Kyenjojo.

“ADF combatants move around in small groups and carry out vengeance attacks and violent reprisals against civilians in the Democratic Republic of Congo,” Ugandan Police announced in a communique issued on Tuesday, Jan. 11.

The authorities said they were determined to stop ADF combatants running away from the joint DR Congo-Uganda military operations in eastern DR Congo from returning to Uganda and causing havoc.

“We are convinced that the arrests carried out to date will contribute in attenuating the threats posed by the ADF which is already seriously wounded and more dangerous. Our operations to counter and face all terrorist threats are continuing,” Enanga Fred, the spokesperson of the Ugandan police said.

A joint team of Ugandan security operatives has been put in place to smoke out ADF collaborators since the attacks on Kampala.

It comprises members of diverse security services which have also reinforced their presence on the border separating Uganda and DR Congo.
