The insecurity in Congo inevitably pushed hundreds of Congolese citizens to seek asylum in the Republic of Uganda, notably, the forced migrations have recently caused both security and health scares!. Health concerns have been tabled as it was alleged that most refugees are crossing the border into Uganda without fully going under appropriate COVID-19 tests.
Uganda had initially closed all her borders due to the COVID-19 SOPs but later it made a humanitarian approach to the situation.
Congo citizens have been settling in Nyakambi settlement camp, however, a few of them have started on their way back to Karambo and Basigari…in Congo respectively.
preliminary information indicates that the ongoing fighting started in Chanzu hills and Runyonyi village near the Virunga ranges.
