Uganda People’s Defense Forces (UPDF) has registered two fatalities under Operation Shujaa where UPDF and Congolese forces are pursuing the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF).

According to the UPDF spokesperson Brig Gen Flavia Byekwaso, the two soldiers did not die of enemy fire but rather made an operation error while handling weapons.

“Two soldiers have died due to personal mistakes,” said Byekwaso.

Meanwhile, the joint UPDF, FARDC forces captured the much revered ADF ‘Kambi ya Yua’ Camp.

The camp was captured with limited enemy resistance and there was no effect on the joint forces.
