Sources in the UPDF have told Chimpreports that Kangul tried to fool the authorities in Central African Republic that Kony intended to surrender to Uganda if the brutal LRA leader was assured of his safety.


In doing this, Kangul wanted to secure food and medicine supplies for his fighters.


A fake agent posing as an official from CAR was used to make contact with Kangul.


Desperate for supplies, Kangul swiftly marched to an agreed location after River Vovodo.


“We had Kangul on our radar as he met our contact. He was in company of heavily armed but exhausted escorts who were carrying heavy luggage. As they tried to cross back to the river bank, we quickly informed them to surrender or face fire. However, some drew their weapons to attack us thus attracting our wrath. We sprayed them with bullets, killing 14 instantly,” said a top source in the army.


Other LRA fighters drowned in the river known for being infested with dangerous reptiles such as crocodiles.


In 2002, a UPDF soldier was mauled by crocodile as he collected water for cooking while another was seriously injured.


It is important to note that LRA commander, Caesar Accellam, was also picked as he tried to cross River Mbomu.


The better part of CAR is densely forested with little or no road infrastructure. UPDF soldiers usually camp near streams for water for cooking and usually cut down trees to penetrate forests.


Kangul was said to be number 4 after Kony in the LRA command hierarchy and one of the militia’s most notorious field commanders in Northern Uganda.


This website has also been informed that Kangul survived the 2009 Special Forces’ blistering air raid on LRA’s hideouts in Garamba, DRC.


UPDF, which is being supported by United Stated Special Forces, aims at capturing or killing Kony and his elusive commanders to effectively put an end to the two-decade brutal rebellion that left thousands killed and millions displaced in Northern Uganda, DRC, South Sudan and Central Africa Republic.
