THE Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) recently handed over 41 people, including two babies, to Kitgum Concerned Women’s Association (KICWA) after rescuing them from the Lord’s Resistance Army rebels.

UPDF 5th Division spokesperson 2nd. Lt. Chris Magezi handed over the former abductees to KICWA’s centre manager Christopher Arwai at Gang-Dyang army barracks.

KICWA is a centre dealing with the rehabilitation and reintegration of former abductees.

Meanwhile, the army in Gulu has stepped up its operations against the rebels, reports Justin Moro.

Fourth Division commander Col. Nathan Mugisha recently said UPDF mobile forces were deployed in areas occupied by the rebels.

Mugisha said most of the rebel hideouts had been destroyed, while others had been occupied by the Army.

He discouraged citizens from collaborating with the rebels.
