UGANDA Set To Remove Troops From DRC In Two Weeks Following The Lapse Of The Agreement For Operation Shujaa, Presidents Museveni And Tshisekedi Can However Opt To Extend It

Uganda will pull out its troops from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in two weeks, the military said on Tuesday, following a joint operation against the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels since December last year.

Uganda blames the ADF for three suicide bombings in the capital Kampala on Nov. 16, 2021, in which seven people lost their lives and more than 37 injured.

“Operation Shujaa will officially cease in about 2 weeks according to our original agreement,” Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba, the commander of land forces, said on Twitter.

“It was supposed to last for 6 months. Unless I get further instructions from our Commander-in-Chief or CDF (chief of defense forces), I will withdraw all our troops from DRC in 2 weeks,” Kainerugaba added.

However, the General clarified that the operation may continue even for another 6 months if H.E. Tshisekedi and H.E Museveni agree so:

No update was provided on the status of the operation against the ADF.
