“At least two terrorists were captured and two machine guns recovered after the ambush,” said Ankunda.

The incident occurred in sector 1 where UPDF is carrying out military operations against the Al Qaeda-linked extremists.

The fighting comes against the background of intensified bombing of civilian areas by Al Shabaab.

Last week, Al Shabaab masterminded a car bomb that exploded near the Somali Parliament, killing four people in the capital Mogadishu.


According to AMISOM, the attack saw all the 13 Al Shabaab terrorists killed, four UPDF soldiers injured and three dead.

“It was such a robust and commando type operation you can think of in the world. We salute the gallant soldiers who thwarted the intention of terrorists to kill parliamentarians. All MPs were evacuated to safety.”

The deceased UPDF soldiers have since been brought to Uganda for burial.

“We send back our fallen comrades with grief and sorrow!” officials in the national army said.

“But in their bravery and resolute to liberate Somalis, we shall pick courage and soldier on to liberate the African people and for the cause of Pan-Africanism. Fare thee well comrades!”

Uganda sent peacekeepers to Somalia in 2007 and since then has lost some of them to the terror group Al Shabaab in a bid to safeguard lives of innocent Somalis.

Yet despite the sad episodes like Saturday’s, the national army’s continent in the war-torn Horn of African nation, vows to continue its operations until peace is restored.

Last month, Ugandan dispatched more 410 soldiers to reinforce the current forces in Somalia under the United Nations Guard Unit (UNGU).
