The UPDF has begun withdrawing from the Central Africa Republic where it has since 2012 been part of the African Union Regional Task Force.
The first batch has been received this morning in Gulu by the Chief of Staff Land Forces (COS-LF) Brig Katsigazi Tumusiime and 4Div Commander Brig Emmanuel Kanyesigye.
Brig Katsigazi says the decision to withdraw was premised on the realization that the mission to neutralize the LRA has now been successfully achieved.
He says the UPDF operations have contributed significantly to the restoration of peace and tranquility in big areas of the Central Africa Republic (CAR).
