The Kasese Resident District Commissioner, Milton Odongo has directed all security agencies in the district to monitor the Uganda - DR Congo border and apprehend all illegal entrants into the country.
The RDC's order follows the recent Congolese illegal entry into Uganda via Kayanja fishing village I Nyakiyumbu sub-county in Kasese.
Mr Odong was on Monday addressing residents of Kayanja fishing village about security issues and how some Ugandans could aid the return ADF rebels through the landing site.
He warned Ugandans who he said were smuggling Congolese into the country arguing them to use the legally gazette areas.
"We have not stopped you from going and coming from DR Congo but we want you to use legal means. How can MPs from both countries illegally enter either country; there is a motive behind these people which we must watch", the RDC warned .
Security agencies claim that Allied Democratic Forces, ADF rebel suspects are many in Kasese .
Security agencies have embarked on community policing programme on lake shores to show them the dangers of housing unknown people calling upon them to report to the nearest authorities for their verification.
