Wacha said he listened to a BBC report on Wednesday morning, in which a Congolese rebel leader claimed that the UPDF was behind the current wave of fighting that has claimed hundreds in the area.
Wacha, the chairman of the parliamentary committee on rules and privileges, said the rebel leader spoke of intense fighting in the Ituri region and that between 300 and 400 people had been killed by yesterday morning. â€œHe (rebel leader) said the fighting was so intense that there was no time for burying the dead and accused Uganda and one other country of being behind the massacres,â€ Wacha said.
He rose on a point of clarification soon after the Speaker, Edward Ssekandi, had made his communication from the chair.
â€œI would like to know if Uganda's presence in the Congo is for massacring the Congolese,â€ Wacha said.
None of the responsible ministers of defence and foreign affairs was in the House at that moment and Wachaâ€™s question went unanswered. Ends
