There are evil intended plans by a yet to be identified armed group operating in DR Congo to discredit operation Shujaa, which is aimed at flashing out Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) extremists.

In a joint statement, the joint forces of Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) and the Congolese army (FARDC) said the armed group has plans of using the UPDF uniform to commit atrocities against civilians and instead blame the Ugandan army.

This sinister clandestine plan is deliberately intended to sabotage the operation against the ADF, according to the joint forces’ statement.

The statement dated January 10, was signed by Brig. Flavia Byekwaso, the UPDF spokesperson, and her counterpart, Maj. Gen. Leon-Richard Cibangu Kasonga on behalf of FARDC.

“The FARDC and UPDF wish to alert the public that they have critical information about the existence, in the region in which they lead military operations, of an armed group harbouring sinister clandestine plans deliberately intended to sabotage the joint military action against the ADF active in the East of DR Congo and discredit operation Shujaa,” the joint statement said.
