Uganda ready to go and fight rebels in DRC

22 April 2015, 21:44 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Authorities in Uganda have said that Uganda Peoples Defence Force is ready to go and fight rebels based in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

Uganda's offer to go to fight the rebels comes after some Congolese openly made the request to Uganda's minister for defence, Crispus Kiyonga Tuesday evening.

Kiyonga had attended the launch of the rehabilitation of offices for people with disabilities in Mpondwe town and was attended by Congolese people with disabilities.

''We ask Uganda to intervene by eliminating rebels in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo where they kill, rape women and abduct children in addition to looting civilians' property,'' said Isah Kwililabo, the coordinator of People living with disabilities in Congo.

Among the most notorious rebels based there are the Allied Democratic Front (ADF) rebels who originated in Uganda in 1990's but after being defeated they relocated to Democratic Republic of Congo where they often attack civilians and mercilessly kill them.

Kiyonga said if the government of Democratic Republic of Congo requests Uganda to go and finish off the rebels, they are ready to send their forces to do the work.

''We are ready to send there our forces. If President Kabila invites us to go there to help in fighting ADF rebels, we are prepared to do so,'' said Kiyonga.

He however added that Uganda Peoples Defence Force and Congolese army are working together to eliminate rebels in eastern  Democratic Republic of Congo.
