A Tanzanian court has ordered the extradition of Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebel leader Jamil Mukulu to Uganda where he is wanted on several murder charges.

Mukulu had early this month told Kisutu Resident Magistrates Court that he did not believe he could be treated fairly by the Kampala court due to ideological differences he had with the Kampala government.

However, Magistrate Cyprian Mkeha ruled yesterday that he was satisfied that the charges against the rebel leader were not political, paying way for his imminent return to Uganda.

The magistrate also said there is sufficient evidence to establish prima-facie murder charge against him.

Mukulu to appeal

Mukulu said he was not satisfied with the ruling and told the court he will appeal.
Mr Mkeha ordered Mukulu to remain on remand, as he awaits to proceed with the appeal process in the Tanzania Hight Court.

On May 22, the government of Uganda through its Attorney General Freddie Ruhindi, submitted the application for Mukulu's extradition, saying the latter is wanted in the country to answer several criminal charges, including murder.

Mukulu is accused of commanding a spate of brutal attacks against civilians in both Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo since the late 1990s.
