Uganda army Chief tasked CAR to tackle LRA threats

Gen Edward Katumba Wamala, Uganda’s Chief of Defense Forces (CDF) has said as Uganda pulls out its troop, the Central African Republic (CAR) security should fill in the vacuum and take the responsibility of fighting off the threats posed by the Joseph Kony’s Lord Resistance Army (LRA) rebels against its population.
Uganda and African regional forces alongside 100 US Special Forces have been hunting for the ICC indicted LRA leader Kony and his commanders in the vast jungles of the Central African nations since 2006.
Addressing journalists on Friday last week on the sidelines of the passing out of newly trained air force pilots at Gulu Airbase in Gulu Municipality, Gen Katumba Wamala said Uganda has done all it can to help CAR deal with its security problem when there was no government.
According to Uganda’s Chief of Defence Forces, Uganda also has a fair share of security concerns and there is need that UPDF who are out on foreign missions be brought back home.
Since moving out of northern Uganda in 2006, Kony and his men have been accused of pillage, poaching and recruitment of child soldiers in the vast swathes of DRC and CAR.
