The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), uganda rebels, have again delayed the signing of peace deal with the government of Uganda scheduled to take place Thursday 10th April here in Juba, Southern Sudan.
Journalists, diplomatic corps and some NGO officials have been flown in to report and witness the event.
Joseph Kony, the rebel leader, wants some elaborations on some issues before putting his signature on that document. At least this is the official reason given for the delay.
Unofficially, it has been reported that Kony is redeploying his troops to Central Africa Republic from the thick forests of Congo (DRC). ‘Analists’ believe that this move would make it easier for Khartoum to resupply their old friend, the LRA, with arms and what-have-you to destabalize the southern Sudan and Northern Uganda.
In the main time, parts of southern Sudan and northern Uganda still live in constant fear of these child-abducting rebels! In southern Sudan, they are called ‘Tong Tong‘ meaning those who chop off people’s arms. The Tong Tong have left a trail of chaos, disaster and tragedy.
We all hope Kony sings this deal and peace comes to Uganda and Sudan.
