Suspected Allied Democratic Forces, ADF rebels have killed at least seven people in Kamwenge district, western Uganda. The attack occurred in the early hours of Tuesday in Kyabandara township.

Remember, President Museveni recently said the UPDF were hunting for a group of ADF fighters? He also added that these have been carrying out sporadic raids on villages and townships, killing innocent people. He also said the ADF elements were fleeing from the UPDF’s aerial attacks in the eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

However, the attack has sent shockwaves across Kamwenge. However, local leaders say UPDF has rushed to deploy forces in the area to hunt down the killers and reassure the public of security.

“The raids started at 1:00 a.m. as people were sleeping,” said Moses Tukundane, an area resident. “We heard people screaming and calling for help.”.

“She was killed by the attackers, and we have seen the body,” said an eyewitness who preferred anonymity to speak freely.

“In desperation, they have been sending small groups of infiltrators like the group of Njovu that killed the tourists. Njovu was injured and arrested, and three of his group were killed. About seven members of his group escaped, and the security forces are hunting them in the Kibaale National Park area,” said Museveni on December 3, 2023.

“That group is led by Kamusu, a Congolese. Their other leader in Congo is Abu Waqas, an Arab from Tanzania. His camp is one of those that were attacked by our forces.”.

In conclusion, one of the victims of the attack has been identified as Beatrice, the councillor of Kyabandara township.
