Christmas Horror! Suspected ADF Militants Kill Three In Second Attack Kamwenge District

By Spy Uganda

Kampala: Three people have been confirmed dead following an attack by Suspected militants from the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) in a Christmas Day assault on Nyabitusi village 1 located in Kamwenge District in western Uganda.

This tragic event follows a similar attack in another village within the same district just one week prior resulting in the loss of 10 residents.

Isiah Byarugaba Kanyamahane, the Resident District Commissioner of Kamwenge confirmed the recent attack noting that the victims include an elderly woman and her two grandchildren whose house was set ablaze.

At the time of this report, efforts were underway to assess the possibility of additional casualties.

One of the residents who arrived at the scene early on Tuesday recounted the grim discovery of the burnt house with the dead bodies of the victims amidst the ashes.

Despite prior reports of suspicious individuals in the village on Monday and subsequent police responses, the absence of security personnel during the attack raises concerns.

This unfortunate incident echoes a pattern observed in Kitehurizi village just a week earlier where militants engaged in looting, burning houses that left over 10 people dead.

It is worth remembering that border areas near the Democratic Republic of Congo particularly Kasese District have experienced recurring raids.

Following last week’s attack, President Museveni identified the attackers as remnants of a defeated ADF group in the DRC fleeing from the joint operation initiated in November 2021 by the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) and the Congolese national army against the militants.

Despite assurances of the ADF’s defeat, these distressing incidents persist both in Uganda and DR Congo with hundreds of lives being lost. an accessible web community
