MARACHA - Maracha Resident District Commissioner (RDC) has warned Ugandans against operating nightclubs across the border in DR Congo.

Festus Ayikobua said, they risk being arrested by Congolese authorities as his office has initiated bilateral cooperation to apprehend the offenders.

The warning by the RDC follows, complaints raised during security meetings by leaders of sub-counties neighbouring DR Congo last week. 

They complained of nightclubs operated by Ugandans in DR Congo.

This they said, was a major challenge in enforcing measures to curb the spread of covid19.

The leaders further decried that, the rampant crossing of Ugandans to DR. Congo as escalated cases of insecurity.

Godfrey Osutre, the LC.3 Chairman for Paranga sub-country said that much as they know the people perpetrating the acts, DRC is a sovereign country, and they could not enforce operations.

Joel Candia, the LC.3 chairman for Oluvu sub-county said last week a young lady from Uganda was gang rapped by a group of Ugandan boys on the DRC side of the border. 

 Ayikobua said they have renewed their cooperation with Congolese authorities to apprehend any suspected criminal regardless of nationality.

He also castigated the local politicians for shielding some of the criminals coming from their sub-counties.
