Uganda: December 22, 2003


Uganda reported that its program to integrate former members of Idi Amin's rogue army into the Ugandan Army is continuing. A 600-troop contingent entered Uganda two weeks ago. Ultimately, as many as 10,000 former Amin supporters who have been living in the DRC are now in Uganda or will be within the next month. A Ugandan spokesman said many of the rebels had belonged to a splinter faction called the West Nile Bank Front (WNBF). A total of 22 rebel groups have been fighting the Ugandan government since Yoweri Museveni came to power in 1986.
