The latest from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is that Ugandan and Congolese troops have kicked off the second phase of their operations against the ‘Pigs’ terrorizing region.

Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) operation’s commader Major General Muhanga Kayanja says they concluded the first phase of the operation after capturing the major camps of the rebels.

In their operation called Shujaa, Muhanga says they have now transited into a second phase of hunting for these rebels this time running after them by foot.

The ADF was historically a Ugandan rebel coalition whose biggest group comprised people opposed to Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.

The group established itself in eastern DRC in 1995, later becoming the deadliest of dozens of outlawed forces in the troubled region.

DRC’s Catholic Church has said the ADF has killed approximately 6,000 civilians since 2013 while a respected monitor, the Kivu Security Tracker, blamed it for more than 1,200 deaths in the area alone since 2017.

In March, the United States placed the ADF on its list of “terrorist” organisations linked to ISIL.
