The Ministry of Defense and Veteran Affairs has denied falsehoods in media reports being spread by Jules Mulumba claiming that the Uganda People’s Defense Force, UPDF is in Rutshuru, in the Eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Brig Gen. Kulayigye said that the pictures were taken when Uganda’s UPDF contingent to the East African Community Regional Force was in Tsengero General Area on Bunagana, Rutshuru to Goma Axis, and not Sake, as Mulumba has claimed.

“Mulumba, who is the Spokesman of the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR), also known as Wazalendo, is trying to justify their losses to the M23 Group with such allegations,” Brig Gen. Kulayigye said in the press statement.

According to a press statement issued by the Ministry of Defense and Veteran Affairs, which is also the UPDF Spokesman, Brig Gen. Felix Kulayigye, dated February 15, 2024, Mulumba attempted to desperately authenticate his claims by using pictures of the UPDF that were part of the East African Community Regional Force (EACRF) to support his falsehoods.

In conclusion, Brig. Gen. Kulayigye made it categorically clear that the UPDF has no reason to be involved in an internal conflict, except when it is a regional peace effort.
