The National Army for the Liberation of Uganda (NALU) was a rebel group opposed to the Ugandan government. It formed in 1988 in western Uganda and moved into eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, where it merged into the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), another Ugandan rebel group.[1]

The NALU was created Amon Bazira, a former Deputy Minister under Obote. After negotiating the armistice between the colonial-era Rwenzururu secessionist group and the second Obote regime in 1982, he enlisted the financial support of the Kenyan and DRC governments to renew the resistance against the new government under the NRM. The UPDF drove the NALU into the DRC, where the force eroded until the last remnants joined with the Allied Democratic Movement and the Uganda Muslim Liberation Army to form the ADF, with the sponsorship of the Sudanese government.[2]
