On Wednesday, December 27, 2023, the Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces (UPDF) allegedly attacked a group of Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels and killed their commander, Kamusi.

The attack reportedly happened in Kabingo III, Kyabandala parish in Kamwenge district, around 8:00 a.m.

According to sources, about five ADF members were injured in the attack; one PK gun, a number of SMG guns, communication equipment, and some IEDs were recovered.

Reports from UPDF state that on December 13, 2023, the top ADF commander, Kamusi, was injured, and two of his close bodyguards were put off action by security forces in Kibale Forest.

On December 5, 2023, Kamusi and his group attacked an elderly lady, Biira Betty, in Kanyatete village in Kasese District and hacked her to death, injuring her attendant, a 14-year-old boy named Masereka Harrison.

Upon receiving the information about the incident, the UPDF, through technical intelligence and in collaboration with the deceased’s relatives, managed to track Kamusi and his group in Kibale Forest.

Two of his close bodyguards were killed, and the following SMG rifles were recovered: two guns, Number NY3231 and Number 2900339, and 37 rounds of ammunition.

This was the surviving group of Njovu (who was arrested earlier in November), which was attempting to cross into Kibale to establish bases.
