#US Pulling out from #Uganda's hunt for #LRA's #Kony; #Australia pulls back @IGPUganda @PoliceUg @UPDFspokesman




A Brilliant Genocide is a very powerful documentary. The Ugandan government can no longer hide the atrocities committed in Uganda and in the Great Lakes Regional countries.  In fact, President Trump asked why US was in #DRCongo, #Car and #SouthSudan. Even #Somalia.

The days of President Yoweri Museveni using his army #UPDF to invade countries, cause havoc, blackmail America and Europe to give him money for his egotistical self interests have come to an end.  This is only the beginning.  Yesterday US was in media cutting back UN efforts in #DRCongo which Museveni and his thugs have raped, by 25%.

Do you remember that RT (Russia Today) aired the Brilliant Genocide exactly 2 days before the army bombed Kasese leaving behind a trail of blood, corpses and arrogant generals telling us the innocent had to die because...because..WHY?  Because we wanted to re-invade DRC?  Which we did.  And now who shall locate the mass graves in which your sons and daughters are buried?  Alas! What timing...you have just been watched by over 30 million people globally about a genocide in Northern Uganda and then you proceed to slaughter people as the masses are just getting over the shock of how you killed Acholi?  BAD timing.

You will also remember that every time there is a threat of #US, #EU, #UK and #UN cutting back funding for the #AMISOM (useless African Union defence force) in #Somalia, we get more terrorist attacks.  Those who follow Ugandan politics know that UPDF trains and arms Al Shabaab.  Uganda plants bombs. Why do you think the govt prosecutor Joan Kagezi was gunned down and the investigation died?

If you like what SPAN writes, then do a Google search of "SPAN Nangalama blog".  He wrote a piece about why Joan Kagezi had to die.  She was in possession of information that Kayihura & govt had planted the Lugogo bombing which left some 67 people dead and to this day, no prosecution has taken place.  Uganda police cannot lie to us that they have arrested the killers of Kaweesi or are even close.  They know damn well who killed Kaweesi but having protected killers for decades, now the Chicken comes to Roost.  There is a God after all!  Our tears have been heard.

The Ugandan military says an aide to Lord's Resistance Army chief Joseph Kony has surrendered, a day after the United States said it will withdraw from the task force chasing the notorious rebel group.

Ugandan military officials said Thursday that Michael Omona, Kony's chief communications officer, gave himself up in the Central African Republic. Omona was part of the LRA for 23 years after being kidnapped by the group in 1994.

On Wednesday, the U.S. military said it will remove its forces from Operation Observant Compass, the task force established in 2013 to hunt down bands of LRA fighters roaming across Central Africa and bring Kony and other LRA leaders to justice.

In a statement, the U.S Africa Command said the task force has "dramatically weakened the LRA in numbers and overall effectiveness." It said the LRA has shrunk from 2,000 to under 100 fighters, and noted that four of the five key LRA leaders have been captured.

Kony, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity, remains at large. A former LRA senior commander, Dominic Ongwen, is currently on trial at the ICC in The Hague.

The African Union Peace and Security Council met in Addis Ababa Thursday to discuss the future of the anti-LRA task force. The council said on Twitter that it may recommend the force be increased, decreased, shut down or left as is.

"Though weakened, LRA remains a security threat," the council said.

A self-styled prophet, Kony launched a brutal rebellion in Uganda that displaced more than 1.5 million people before taking his group into Sudan, the CAR and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The United Nations estimated in 2013 that the LRA had killed more than 100,000 people and kidnapped more than 60,000 over the previous quarter-century.


Both numbers have likely increased since then, as the group has continued to attack villages in remote areas.
