It further states that UPDF has been at Mukakati Forward Operating Base for a week, carrying out other military activities that enhance combat readiness against ADF terrorists and have embarked on constructing and rehabilitation of roads to smoothen the operations.
“The two forces are currently engaged in road construction and rehabilitation works to facilitate and further secure the movement of soldiers and the displaced civilian population, particularly on the Mbau-Kamango and Nobili axes, Kamango-Semliki-Beni,” the statement adds.
According to UPDF, the dilapidated and narrow stretch of 14kms had slowed down the advance of the UPDF ground offensive against ADF terrorists.
