Uganda: June 18, 2000


Scotch the withdrawal. It looks like more fighting around Kisangani is brewing. Uganda accused Rwanda of reinforcing units and positions in and around Kisangani. A Congolese Rally for Democracy (RCD) spokesman countered by saying that Uganda was sending six battalions to Kisangani. AFP reported that diplomats in Kisangani had seen "Ugandan tanks" in the area. Uganda denied the allegations of the RCD and said that the RPA (Rwanda Patriotic Army) was guilty of truce violations. A Ugandan spokesman said that the RPA was sending troops toward Kisangani. The troops were coming from Kivu, Kabalo, Walikale, and Kileme.
