The Central African Republic (CAR) military Commander says the Lords Resistance Army rebel group led by Joseph Kony is history.

 

General Celestin Kifua, the commander of the 9th military region of the DR Congo Armed Forces (FARDC), was quoted saying that “LRA is part of history and no longer exists in the country”.

Kifua said the situation was calm in the eastern province of Orientale and the campaigns were going on well.

The LRA is held responsible for atrocities in the Central African Republic, South Sudan and DR Congo.

Last week, the U.S. sent a team of 100 American Special Forces to the Ugandan capital Kampala to support the regional army in the fight against the LRA.

U.S. President Barack Obama said the majority of the military advisors and trainers will be deployed to Uganda, with the rest to be sent to the Central African Republic, South Sudan and the northeastern region of DR Congo.
