Commander of the DRC based Ugandan rebel group the Allied Democratic Forces [ADF] Jamil Mukulu has at last been returned to the country from Tanzania where was arrested recently.

Upon his capture in the neighboring country in April, viagra Kampala commenced talks with the authorities to have him extradited back to Uganda.

A Dar es Salaam court in May cleared his extradition process. Mukulu through his lawyers unsuccessfully challenged the court ruling on grounds that he was unlikely to face a fair trial in Uganda.


Yesterday Friday at around 6PM, Mukulu touched down at Entebbe airport from Tanzania.

In Uganda, he faces a myriad of charges for allegedly ordering a spate of deadly attacks against civilians since the 1990s.

Mukulu is accused of multiple counts of murder stemming from his role as the leader of the Islamic militant group that regularly attacks civilians in Uganda and eastern Congo.

He is accused of leading a 1998 attack in which scores of Ugandan students were burned to death in Kichwamba while asleep in their dormitories.

Police yesterday confirmed his extradition and told us he had been taken to an undisclosed place in Jinja.

“Yes we were able to bring him back and he was directly driven to Jinja. From here he will be brought to court,” Police spokesperson Fred Enanga told Chimpreports last evening.

“The process to identify the various counts of murder upon which a warrant of arrest was issued has kicked off.”

UPDF was also excited about the return of the most wanted Islamist rebel leader; “Finally, Jamil  Mukulu has been extradited to Uganda, justice will prevail,” tweeted the army spokesperson Col Paddy Ankunda.

Jamilu Mukulu’s rebel group, which has been training Ugandans including minors to fight the regime, is accused of launching a series of deadly bomb blasts in the Ugandan capital of Kampala in the late 1990s before a military operation forced the rebels to move to eastern Congo.

Commencement of his trial comes at the time when the country is puzzled by a spate of murders of Muslim clerics believed to be orchestrated by the remnants of the same rebel group.

About six have been gunned down in a space of months and police believes the ADF’s is punishing these former members and collaborators of abandoning the group and siding with government.
