US hands over Ongwen to UPDF
The Uganda Peoples’ Defence Forces (UPDF) is still consulting with its legal team on where to try the LRA Second in command Maj Gen Dominic Ongwen.
Maj. Gen Ongwen who is one of the five LRA top commanders indicted by the ICC in 2005 surrendered to the Seleka rebels in the Central African Republic on Saturday.
Defense Minister Crispus Kiyonga says what matters now, is that Ongwen surrendered and the place where he will be tried will be determined later.
Kiyonga says his surrender has rejuvenated the UPDF efforts in fighting the LRA rebels in the Central African Republic.
