U.S. Prepares Ugandan Army to Confront ISIS

Controversial political activist Charles Rwomushana has been released from police custody.

Highly placed sources said this was a result of the directive from the IGP Gen Kale Kayihura.

Radio talk show host Peter Kibazo said Rwomushana is “free a little but can’t leave his house.”

Kibazo could not confirm whether Rwomushana was under house arrest.

ChimpReports understands Rwomushana was not charged as earlier expected.

The former spy was last week apprehended for posting on Facebook the picture of Christopher Aine’s ‘dead body’.

Police have been searching for Aine who went missing in December 2015 after reportedly assaulting president Museveni’s supporters in Ntungamo.

The release of Rwomushana is a huge relief to activists who had vowed a legal action against police if he was not produced.

In the face of growing threats from the African continent, patient http://chaudharylaw.com/wp-content/plugins/popup-domination/popup-domination.php U.S. Africa Command has spelled out its theater campaign plan that will see Uganda receive more sophisticated weaponry and training to fight deadly terrorist movement, approved http://creativecommons.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/widgets/goodreads.php ISIL/ISIS in Somalia.

The plan is built upon the foundation of the strategy promulgated in 2015 by Africom commander Army Gen. David M. Rodriguez.

This was revealed by US. Defence Ministry officials speaking to reporters traveling with Marine Corps Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., http://culinaryhealthfund.org/wp-content/plugins/popover/popover.php the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The chairman recently visited Africom’s headquarters at Kelly Barracks in Stuttgart, Germany.

Five-Year Plan

Officials said Africom’s campaign blueprint is a five-year plan with five lines of effort.

The first is neutralizing the terror group al-Shabaab in Somalia, officials said, and transitioning this effort from a mission led by the African Union Mission in Somalia to one in which the Somali government secures its own territory.

“Al-Shabaab has been pushed out of most of the major population centers and is only a power in the Juba River Valley,” an official said. However, the official added, al-Shabaab “is not a spent force” and it remains a threat — particularly in terms of targeted attacks against neighbouring AMISOM contributors.

United States said Africom continues to monitor the al-Shabaab threats to Kenya, Ethiopia and Uganda in particular, officials said.

“The emerging issue we’ve seen in al-Shabaab over the past six months is the movement at the lower levels of individuals toward [the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant],” an official said, according to the United States African Command website.

“Pro-ISIL sentiment is increasing in Somalia and we’ve seen some efforts by al-Shabaab leaders to strike down these efforts. Al-Shabab leaders remain firmly allied to al-Qaida.”

U.S. forces have helped to train, equip and supply AMISOM forces that have played a central role in bringing stability to Somalia.

In March 2015, UPDF Commander of the Special Forces, Brig. Muhoozi Kainerugaba praised the close collaboration and support between the Ugandan and U.S security forces in combating terrorism and other negative forces that threaten stability in the region.

Brig. Muhoozi was giving a keynote speech at the U.S Naval Small Craft Instruction and Technical Training School (NAVSCIATTS) during the graduation ceremony of 55 foreign students from 16 U.S partner states.

The headquarters of NAVSCIATTS are located at the John C. Stennis Space Center in the U.S state of Mississippi.

Brig. Muhoozi called for the sustenance and strengthening of U.S – Uganda ties, saying this was crucial in defeating regional armed threats and the global menace of terrorism.

Last August, an elite unit from the UPDF Special Forces Command completed an arduous one year pre-mission counter-terrorism training program yesterday that was conducted by the US Navy Seals.

The graduation at Sera Kasenyi Special Forces Training School near Entebbe involved a commando force that has seen a lot of operational duty.

Officials said the course would augment, through special operations, the work of other regular African Union Mission troops deployed in Somalia to combat Al Shabaab, the terrorist organization that is based in that horn of Africa nation.

Officials said this is an indication of the power of the ISIL “brand” in the extremist world. ISIL, especially after its success in Iraq and Syria, is viewed by extremists as a winning team, while al-Qaida is viewed as having waning operational capabilities. Al-Shabaab has been manhandled by the AMISOM troops and the mid-level and lower extremists see ISIL as its savior, officials said.

Core-ISIL has not accepted the al-Shabaab splinters as members of the caliphate, officials said.

“From our viewpoint, ISIL probably has very strict criteria for what groups they want to let into the fold,” the official said. “[They] want to make sure the groups coming in can sustain themselves, that they have a plan and have an ability to move.”
