We are not aware of Kony's death- UPDF

By Risdel Kasasira

The Ugandan army has described reports trending on social media that the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) rebel leader, Joseph Kony had been gunned down by American Special Forces as speculation.

“It would be good news for us. But we are not aware of it,” Lt. Col Paddy Ankunda said on Tuesday. Ugandan People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) is the lead force in the hunt against LRA and its elusive leader.

Other sources in the Central African Republic, where the war lord is currently operating from, also indicate that the information of his (Joseph Kony) death is false.
