“The 19 were airlifted by the UPDF and are receiving medical care from the UPDF medical team,” Katamba said in a statement.

“Among the nine women is a mother who delivered two months ago and was left in the bush by her colleagues after failing to keep pace with her group,” the statement reads further.
