Museveni was on Sunday speaking on a Voice of Toro talk-show at the presidential state lodge on Njara hill, fort portal municipality, Kabarole.
“The rebels should either return home and be granted amnesty or stay in Congo,” he said. Museveni was reacting to a remark from the moderator of the show, Patrick Bamanyisa, that the people of Ruwenzori were worried that the rebels were planning to attack the region again.
On why those who lost their property during the ADF war had not been compensated, Museveni said the money was diverted to the military operations against Joseph Kony in the north.
