Maj Umar Bilal Katamba the UPDF Shujja operations spokesperson said the forces have given rebels chance to surrender because some of them were kidnapped and forcefully initiated into the rebel activities.

“We shall not stop until the Congolese people and Ugandans have peace,” Maj Katamba said. The UPDF entered DRC in November 2021 after Improvised Explosive Devices -IEDs went off in Kampala on October 23rd and November 16 respectively leaving five people dead.
