Uganda’s Museveni says ex-DRC leader Kabila harboured ADF

Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni on Thursday accused Joseph Kabila, the former leader of the Democratic Republic of Congo, of giving sanctuary to armed rebels and allowing them to use proceeds of exploiting minerals and timber to build their strength.

For years, the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), formed in 1995 in Uganda to counter Museveni’s administration, has been carrying out killings of both civilians and security personnel from its base in the jungles of the mineral-rich neighbouring DRC. In 2019, it pledged allegiance to ISIL (ISIS).
