Uganda denies backing M23 rebels of Democratic Republic of Congo

The government has dismissed reports that Uganda is backing M23 rebels of DR Congo.

This follows a leaked 44 paged report by the UN Security Council group of experts pinning Rwanda and Uganda for backing the M23 rebels, who have been fighting the DR Congo army since April.

The document that builds on a UN report published in June, further says that army units from Rwanda and Uganda have helped the M23 expand its control of territory in the war-torn east of DR Congo.

However speaking to Journalists  this morning the Permanent Secretary in the ministry of foreign Affairs Ambassador James Mugume said these are wild allegations accusing the group of experts of being used by some countries that do not want stability in DR Congo.

He however says government will not be derailed in its efforts to bring stability to DR Congo.

Rwanda too has often denied the allegations as totally baseless.
