A video surfaced on February 15, 2022 apparently showing Soldiers wearing Uganda Peoples’ Defense Force (UPDF) uniform posing with dead bodies in civilian clothings.
The dead appear to include a middle aged woman, an elderly woman and several men. The video shows their hands being tied, which indicates they were executed. One of the man’s head was chopped off.
The soldiers were speaking Swahili and Luganda languages commonly used by Uganda security forces. Civil society organizations have condemned the soldiers actions calling them repugnant and a dishonor to the dead.
Although the Ugandan government has not failed to give almost daily briefings about the supposed advances of the ‘most disciplined army in the world’ in the fight against ADF, it has not issued any comments about this atrocity.
