The accusation was in response to the arrest of Abdul Katumba, alias Ben. They found him with Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) targeting mourners at the former Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP) Lt Gen Paul Lokech’s burial.
‘‘The plans and orders for killing our people are coming from the terrorists in Eastern Congo. We are continuing to discuss with HE Felix Tshisekedi about eliminating that cancer.”
According to President Museveni, the ADF was retaliating following Lokech’s role in fighting them.
‘‘This was a shock to the ADF because they had got used to the uncaring actors that would not dig deep even when the clues were abundant. That is why, apparently, the ADF were now targeting Lokech as a person,” he added.
Concurrence of the DRC
Museveni says they are working towards completely dealing with the ADF rebels. However they are waiting for concurrence of DRC Government.
“Our forces are ready to contribute to the punishment of these parasites. We just need the concurrence of Congo Government. It is not correct for MONUSCO to co-exist with the terrorists in Eastern Congo that continue to massacre Congolese and, then, disturb us the neighbours.”
The president also commented about the killings in Masaka. He says they have identified some of the murderers.
“Some of the criminals that have been cutting people in the area of Masaka have been arrested with exhibits and some of those who have been sending them have been identified,” Mr Museveni said.
